International Women’s Day

Olivia, Architect

8 March 2023

To mark this year’s International Women’s Day, we’re shining a light on our supremely talented and inspiring female colleagues. Each day this week, we’ll be hearing from a different member of the team about their experiences in our traditionally male-dominated profession.

Tell us a bit about your career path to date. 
I qualified as an architect in 2019 after studying at Portsmouth, Bath and Tu Wien. I was interested in engineering and art and felt that architecture provided an opportunity to make a positive impact on the world.

Who are your female role models?
I have many friends, family, and colleges that I admire, and anyone advocating  for positive change.

What has been your career highlight so far?
Passing Part III felt like a huge milestone.

What are your thoughts on how gender equality is evolving in the workplace and what are your aspirations for the future?
How we work is adapting. Part time and flexible hours, and remote working is becoming increasingly common. It empowers and supports parents to continue their careers.

If you could give one piece of advice to a woman at the start of her career journey, what would it be.
Champion yourself and focus on developing your interests.

Finally, which is your favourite building designed by a woman?
