Studio Gang founder Jeanne Gang has long been an advocate for change within the architecture field. Her studio's designs push boundaries all over the world, but Gang has recently used her firm to transform architectural practice in a different way—attacking the gender wage gap.

In her Op-Ed, Jeanne Gang provides an analysis on how the architecture profession ranks in the subject of diversity—both race and gender—while also presenting actionable insight into how she is making a difference in her own firm. She writes, "What can we do, immediately, to promote gender equality? It’s obvious: We can start by looking to the fundamental issue of respect in the workplace—pay."
