I have spent most of my career avoiding the topic of “Women in Architecture.” After all, is there any workplace issue that is only an issue for women? Men have families. Men need mentoring. Men struggle with their goals and career path. AND, if I talk about being a woman, am I looking for special treatment? Or will I be perceived as a complainer? Worse yet, will I be labeled based on my gender rather than my actions? Surely, if I just work hard and am effective, I will be treated equitably and fairly. Right?
