This research explores women’s participation in built environment design leadership, an increasingly visible form of leadership that exceeds the design of individual buildings and urban places to have strategic, large-scale, whole of environment, community-wide impact. It builds on an initial pilot study being undertaken in conjunction with the Australian Institute of Architects National Gender Equity Committee that is investigating women’s career experience as design advisors, often working in the public sector, and aims to better understand the expertise involved in design leadership and how it is changing the architecture profession.
