Architectural practice SSH hosts a talk that explores the role of women in the industry of architecture.

This session will explain what kind of academic and career progression women who want to enter the industry can expect, and examines societal expectations, before celebrating the achievements of leading women in architecture.

Later in the session, participants will discover women’s perspectives on the sector compared with men, find out how to embrace differences between genders, and look at how to balance raising a family with a career. This is an exclusive opportunity to see SSH’s Director of Architecture, David Daniels, and our other architectural experts present the practice’s insight on this fascinating topic.
