The lack of diversity in the architecture profession is a problem for every professional who works in the built environment.  The Preparing for Practice Mentorship program, aims to provide fifth year female architecture students with support throughout their final year studies and then through their transition from students into architecture professionals. The program aims to highlight the importance of registration and to provide mentees with a range of professional skills and insights. Our goal is to help bridge the gap between female and male participation levels in the architecture profession.
