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 gives freedom to designers worrying about:
Launching in 2021, the Back to Work network will connect design professionals with firms offering flexible opportunities. We hope to reduce disparities among women architects, improve work-life balance, and maintain a pool of qualified architects to advance the profession and economy. Sign up now to become a beta user!
