GENDER EQUALITY SUPPORTER News / Event / 23.03.2018

McGregor Coxall are proud to support the research and action project on gender equity in landscape architecture between AILA, Parlour and the Monash XYX Lab. Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) is taking a leadership role to ensure the landscape architecture profession is as inclusive, progressive and modern as it possibly can be. The project will investigate the participation of women in landscape architecture and develop strategies to address gender inequity in the profession. There are numerous examples of females who are shaping, innovating and leading the profession. This project will ensure we develop an appropriate research and evidence base to support equality in landscape architecture workplaces more broadly.

The objectives of the project are to:

- Develop a preliminary research base that can inform longer term action and decision making on the topic.

- Support the landscape architecture profession to be inclusive, progressive and modern.

- Use the research and evidence to inform resources, events, programs training and future studies on the issue.

The approach draws on the successful model that Parlour developed working with the architecture profession and enables AILA to begin the longer process of instituting change.
