It’s time to stand up for a better gender balance in architecture and engineering. While other professions have increased their proportion of women, our industries have remained stubbornly male-dominated, especially at senior levels.

The Diversity Agenda is about driving change in New Zealand’s engineering and architecture firms. It started as a partnership between Engineering New Zealand, the New Zealand Institute of Architects and ACENZ – and nearly 50 firms have already come on board. Our goal is to get 20 percent more women in engineering and architecture roles by 2021.
