A Seat at the Table – Yale University Equality in Design survey

In collaboration with the group Equality in Design from the Yale School of Architecture, we share a survey that “aims to attain a broader understanding of the state of gender equity in architecture schools, through both objective and subjective measures. Beyond providing data for a forthcoming exhibition at the Yale School of Architecture, the survey also aims to promote introspection and self-assessment within students and schools.

Do you study at the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment in Delft, or another architecture institute? Please fill in the survey here before the 1st of October.

About the initiative

A Seat at the Table is a forthcoming exhibition at the Yale School of Architecture. Organized by Equality in Design, a student group at YSoA, the exhibition will assess gender dynamics at architecture schools in the United States and around the world.

Based on a crowdsourced survey and existing data, the exhibition will prompt an inquiry into embedded discrimination and biases that exist at scales large and small within spheres of education.

Designed around a collection of reconfigurable seats, the show will create a space for dialogue that will animate its contents. Bringing the intersection of gender and architecture to the fore, A Seat at the Table aims to be a starting point for a longer and larger conversation.
