The American Society of Landscape Architects has released a video statement celebrating Women’s History Month delivered by ASLA President Wendy Miller, FASLA.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity for ASLA and the entire landscape architecture profession to reflect on how far women have come on the road to equality. But it’s also time to reflect with candor and openness on how far we still have to go.”
According to the best available data, only around 27 percent of licensed landscape architects – and only about 30 percent of firm principles – are women.
There has been progress in recent years, both in the profession and in leadership roles within the organization. But Miller acknowledges that there is more to be done.
“Change isn’t accidental – it’s intentional,” Miller says. “We must work together to make change grow in our profession.”
