Women in architecture: Chronicle of Higher Education

Monday, 17 May 2010

In this week’s architecture issue of the Chronicle of Higher Education, Shepley president Carole Wedge joins Ted Landsmark, president of Boston Architectural College; Karen Van Lengen, former dean of the University of Virginia’s School of Architecture; and Kate Schwennsen, associate dean of Iowa State’s College of Design for a discussion of women in architecture.

The article discusses design aesthetics, leadership styles, and challenges in the profession. Carole’s comments reflect remarks from an in-house conversation with five other female designers in the firm. As she notes in the article, “the subject of women in architecture resonates a little differently at Shepley: as a firm we’ve been 50-50 men and women from a long time, from junior staff right through to firm leadership.”

Carole was named Shepley’s first female president in 2004.
