BEAT is a group dedicated to the promotion of equality in the architecture, landscape architecture, and interior design professions through advocacy, mentorship, and networking.
Through mentorship and networking, our aim is to bridge the gap between students, emerging architects, and experienced professionals, and promote the advancement of women in the field by celebrating their accomplishments and contributions.
Recent surveys have noted a drop in the percentage of women who study architecture versus those who are in practice, a number that goes down even further when you look at the number of firm partners and principals who are women. While it is difficult to pinpoint the cause, one thing we know is we can help by providing mentorship to young women currently transitioning into the profession from graduate school.
BEAT’s Annual Leadership Seminar is directed at recent grads and young professionals who intend on practicing architecture, landscape architecture, and interior design. We aim to show this group who we are, how we got to where we are, and what we do! It is important that students and young professionals have this kind of exposure to women who are leaders in the profession, both in practice and in academia.
