Our mission is to go above and beyond the 1% of licensed Latina architects in the US while creating equitable and inclusive opportunities in the architecture profession.
NCARB By the Numbers 2022
Why the disparity?
Women of color experience lack of recognition and representation both in academia and professional practice, which affects career trajectory. While close to 50% of women are earning degrees in Architecture and earn licensing requirements 1.2 times sooner than men, women only represent about 17% of firm principals and/or partners. A 2020 NCARB report shows that non-white candidates are 31% more likely to fall off the path of licensure. This is due to disparity in wages, promotions and recognition.
What will help candidates stay on track for licensure and career advancement opportunities?
