Part W is an action group of women working across architecture and design, infrastructure and construction and campaigning for gender parity across the built environment.
We are impatient for equality. We call out gender discrimination in an industry that routinely excludes.
We are driven by a desire to see places and spaces being designed and delivered in a manner that is open, tolerant and beneficial to all.
We believe what is good for women is good for everyone.
We are pushing for intersectional thinking and are developing a series of actions intended to support women from diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, across generations and with different experiences.
We want to change the conversation around what leadership and notions of success look like.
We are driven by a desire to see design education being non-discriminatory, supportive and accessible to all.
We want to see built projects being instigated, planned and delivered by both women and men equally and fairly.
We are inspired by the possibility of creating public projects and infrastructure schemes that enable, help and support everybody.
We are committed to pushing for flexible working environments that enable women to do their job, free from being intimidated or demoralised.
We point out examples of gender imbalance in the representation of women within our industry and in the media.
