Diversity in Architecture

“…their presence in the firm and at the construction site may pose a threat to some whose paradigm does not include African-Americans as architects. They may be viewed as tokens who are present only to meet some quota, rather than a people with skills equal to those of their peers. For these reasons, it is crucial that the minority architect maintain a strong sense of self respect and determination” - excerpt from Architectural Record, 11/98, page 28


"Black women represent only 0.2 percent of a total population of approximately 91,000 licensed architects. In law, black women account for close to 2 percent of the profession; in medicine, the figure is 4 percent."- excerpt from Architect, March 12, 2007
