Join Process X Parlour on March 4 for a discussion event interrogating workplace flexibility in architecture in recognition of International Women’s Day.
FLEX affects everyone, and yet part-time work is still all-too-often considered an obstacle to career progression.The overwhelming lack of flexibility continues to exclude many from the industry, and has an amplified impact on women – women occupy the majority of part-time roles or leave the industry if flexible arrangements are unavailable.
- What are the primary obstacles facing the varying scales of flexible practice and how might we overcome them?
- How might we precipitate equal career development opportunities for those seeking flexible hours?
- How can firms change their team dynamics to allow for more flexibility?
- What are the challenges experienced by a flexible office and the team members who support flexible workers?
- How might we redefine flexibility in the workplace to dismantle unhealthy, yet contractual, employment expectations?
- How might shifting office culture catalyse action within the profession to better support the many different manifestations of the architectural worker throughout their working lives?
Join us on March 4 at Loop Bar as we address the implications of flexible practice for all and speculate on how flexible trends will shape the future of the profession.
Sonia Sarangi of Atelier Red + Black, Jean Graham of Winter Architecture, Anna Anchor of Bates Smart and Justine Clark of Parlour.
