“Your success will not be determined by your gender or your ethnicity, but only on the scope of your dreams and your hard work to achieve them.” - Dame Zaha Hadid

Since 1979, the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize has been awarded to 38 men and only two women. Of the two women, Zaha Hadid was the first female recipient of this honor.

Why is this important? While there are many industries dominated by men, Architecture is one that has continued to struggle with the integration and retention of women in the field. According to statistics from AIA San Francisco’s Equity by Design Committee, only 22% of women in Architecture are registered.

Ankrom Moisan is a design firm that strives to lessen this gender gap and continue an inclusive culture. We are proud of the fact that of the 10 newly registered architects in the firm last year, NINE were women. We take licensure seriously and support employees interested in pursuing this next step in their career. From internal study groups to financial contributions, the firm tries to ease the challenges of becoming a registered architect.
