Transformations: Equity in Action

Wednesday October 30, 2019

Parlour and the University of Melbourne present two days of lively, incisive and necessary exchange on gender equity in the built environment professions.

How is gender equity reshaping and reinvigorating our professions and disciplines? What action is underway? What demands are being made? Where do we each find agency? What complexities must we engage with? What do we need to better understand? What next?

Transformations: Action on Equity is a platform for researchers, professionals and activists who are changing and challenging the way we think about gender in the built environment professions, and are actively creating new futures for our professions and the communities we serve.

The program is organised as a series of discussions investigating key modes of action – organising at the grassroots, leadership through policy, reshaping the workplace, and rewriting history. This is an opportunity to reflect on recent action, and to grapple with the work still required. The symposium also seeks to expand our knowledge through exploratory conversations on key topics that intersect with and expand understandings of gender equity – gendered Indigeneity, non-binary and gender diverse identities, and mental wellbeing and.
There is lots of work to do, and we must do it together – see you at Transformations!
Conveners: Justine Clark, Julie Willis, Anna Hurlimann

When: 14-15 November 2019
Where: Glyn Davis Building, The University of Melbourne
