Where gender equality remains a myth, minority representation of women in architecture

an article by Graham Cole (Halifax, UK) published in Human Resource Management International Digest Volume 25 Issue 2 (2017)


This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies.

This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.

Achieving equal opportunity for all was one of the driving forces behind the creation of the European Union (EU) in the mid-twentieth century.
In its different guises since then, the constitution has issued various directives pertaining to the issue. Member nations are thus expected to comply with the principles outlined in them.
Key to this arrangement is that countries are empowered to choose their own way of meeting equality objectives. Where gender equality in the context of work is concerned, it appears that progress has been minimal at best.
One might argue that paying lip service to EU Directives is as good as it gets in many cases.
The number of professions which are still firmly male-dominated is ample testimony to such notions.

The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
