Impacts of Gender: Using Personal Perspective and Statistics Towards Achieving Carbon-Neutrality and Positive Change

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There are less than 1000 carbon-neutral buildings. Are architects being taught enough to design for carbon-neutrality? What are the barriers stopping us? What are the strengths that can accelerate aspirational sustainability outcomes?

This interactive, inclusive, session will draw on data from a national survey of architects testing design knowledge of energy-reducing strategies, uncovering surprising relationships between gender, age, and sustainability. We will look at systemic issues in modern culture as they relate to gender in our industry and communities. We will touch on data about women in technology, developing countries, and personal experiences of female architects, engineers, and social-change makers.
