International Women’s Day – proud to be a majority-female business

To mark International Women’s Day, we have created a collage made up of photographs of our female team members from across our 16 global studios.

The purpose of the collage is to show young women, wherever they are in the world, that they should never be put off from pursuing their career ambitions on account of their sex. We believe that female role models have a crucial part to play in encouraging other women to choose architecture as a career.

In the first decade of this century, women accounted for 34-37% of Chapman Taylor employees - today, women make up 52% of Chapman Taylor’s global membership, and growing. We are proud of that fact.

That doesn’t mean there isn’t more work to do. Over the next few years, we expect to see the great improvement in female representation across our international business translating to representation at Director level.

In addition, we want to build on our success in making Chapman Taylor a majority-female business by encouraging more women to choose architecture and design as a career. We commit to avoiding complacency in this regard. It is our belief that a wide range of experiences play a crucial role in our creative success – bringing a synthesis of the very best and latest design ideas from all perspectives.

This collage demonstrates the importance of women pursuing their career ambitions wherever they are in the world and recognises that female role models have a crucial part to play in encouraging other women to choose architecture and design as a career.

In addition, this week, our “Creative Conversations” podcast series features an all-female panel of key figures from our international studios. Hosted by Senior Architect Angharad Jones, the guests are London Associate Director Joanna Stott, Madrid Architect Rocío Martinez and Moscow Marketing Coordinator Liliya Kadieva, who discuss role models, the future of architecture and some key challenges they have overcome during their studies and practice.

In the first decade of this century, women accounted for 35% of Chapman Taylor’s global team - today, women make up close to 50% of our business.

While we are proud of this, there is more we need to do. We are continuing to focus on widening female representation at the senior levels across our international business to further strengthen our design capabilities and to reinforce the culture of Chapman Taylor’s business.

We recognise that a diverse range of talent is pivotal to our creative success and are committed to improving equality across our business. This includes improving our early engagement with education to encourage more women to pursue a career in architecture and design.
