Women Architects: Learn Your Value, Learn to Negotiate / ArchiteXX & The Wage Project

All too often when it comes to the issue of women disappearing from the architecture profession, the question is: why? But perhaps we really should be asking: how?  How can we keep women in the profession? How can more women advance to positions of power? And how can women start earning the money they deserve? 

Well, the best way for women to start earning more, is to start asking for it - and from the very beginning. With this in mind, ArchiteXX ("we ask how not Y") is pairing up with the Wage Project, an organization dedicated to educating women about the importance of learning how to negotiate better salaries, to host two workshops in New York City on October 19th (one from 1pm - 3pm and the other at 3:30pm - 5:30pm).

ArchiteXX, whose web site will be launching soon, is the new name of "Women In Architecture," a group dedicated to transforming the architecture profession for women. It's co-founders are Nina Freedman, the Director of Projects for Shigeru Ban Architects, and Lori Brown, an architect, author and associate professor at Syracuse University.
