NLA’s Inspiring Women programme celebrates, promotes and profiles women working across the built environment industry, to inspire others and provide opportunities to meet, network and further develop skills. The built environment industry, alongside many others, is striving to overcome women’s chronic underrepresentation and lower pay to create a strengthened, resilient workforce. This year-round programme encourages discussion around key issues around how to attract and retain women early in their career, midway through and at more senior levels. What are the different issues that architects, engineers, developers, planners and related professions face across their career and what can be done to accommodate women?
A focused series of Inspiring Women events throughout the year will provide opportunities for engaging more women in the NLA programme, celebrating the role of women in London’s built environment, expanding professional networks, and developing skills.
We aim to have 50% female speakers and contributors across the whole programme.
