The purpose of the QGEC is to promote the values of gender equity in the profession of architecture at the local and regional context. While the committee will engage with a wide range of industry, social and government groups, its focus shall remain on the membership of the architectural profession in Queensland, and maximising fair and equitable access to opportunities for all.
The QGEC has adopted the AIA’s Gender Equity Policy as the foundation of its Policy and Advocacy Framework. Notably, the QGEC recognises that:
“...By adopting a comprehensive and ethical approach, the Institute aims to ensure that it engages fairly with all its members, staff, and other stakeholders, whether male or female, in a positive, respectful and constructive manner. Equally importantly, the Institute aims to assist the whole architectural profession to do the same.”
The committee will meet again in early 2019.
