As landscape architects, we know that diversity brings life, health, and wonder to our planet. We also know that where ecosystems have declined in diversity, restoration takes active intervention. That is why now is time for landscape architecture to address gender parity in the profession through a conscientious, courageous, and active declaration of change.
We hope you join us, the authors, in affirming yourself and your firm to the commitments of the Women’s Landscape Equality (re)Solution by:
Signing the (re)Solution here;
Sharing your commitment to the (re)Solution by posting it on your firm’s website and on social media with the hashtag #landscapeequalitysolution and other relevant hashtags;
Reviewing your firm’s policies and salaries for opportunities to make positive change right away; and
Engaging in conversations with your colleagues on how to more actively enlist women and minorities into your firm’s work, culture and leadership.
We are proud to be partners with you on this effort to reconcile this long overdue disparity in our profession.
