Back to Work

A new way to connect talented designers with firms offering flexible, on-demand contract work.

You deserve a thriving home life without career sacrifice

COVID-19 has been tough on the architecture profession and tougher still on female architects. Even before the pandemic, women bore a disproportionate share of caregiving responsibilities and often felt forced out of the profession to raise their families.

Plus, work-life balance remains a top concern for all architects. The past year has shown us the importance of job flexibility, whether to care for your family or to have more time to do the things you love.

Back to Work invites designers who have concerns about:

  • Long work hours that strain your home life

  • Lack of flexibility to work remotely, job share, or work flexible hours

  • Gaps in your work history due to personal matters

Launching in 2021, the Back to Work network will connect design professionals with firms offering flexible work. We hope to reduce disparities among women architects and maintain a pool of qualified architects to advance the profession and economy. Sign up now to become a beta user!
