New York Times columnist Alison Arieff surveyed gender equality in the profession in her piece, “”Where Are All the Female Architects“:https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/15/opinion/sunday/women-architects.html?” The column noted that women make up only 20 percent of licensed architects and 17 percent of partners and principals. “Every single woman architect I know would, I think, say the same thing,” Deborah Berke said. “‘I want to be a good architect who has a meaningful impact. I don’t want to be known for being a good woman architect.’ Architecture needs to look like the world it serves — and that’s everybody.” Deborah Berke Partners is a women owned firm, with an equal number of men and women, including in our firm’s leadership.
