‘We continue to have the highest percentage of female architects of the UK’s 10 largest practices’
We thrive on engaging conversations across the practice with the aim of nurturing good design as well as staff development for men and women alike. This friendly environment is the foundation of a diverse and equitable workplace in which all can grow and develop. With that in mind, our focus continues to be to nurture confidence, particularly in women, in the workplace, to enable them to take on the different leadership roles, whether it be the creative force behind a new design, directing a large project team, managing practice administration, or growing to lead the practice.
Inclusivity is an important value for us. As managing partner of Allies and Morrison, it’s especially important to me that we have more role models for our women and I hope we are providing these for our younger architects. We continue to promote diversity as we recruit and promote talent at all levels. We continue to have the highest percentage of female architects of the UK’s 10 largest practices.
We believe that inclusivity also results in better architecture. When we incorporate the perspectives of those with different cultural backgrounds, the communities we work for get better architecture and places while the clients we work for get better results.
