Stepping Up on Pay Equity

21 August 2023

Join Parlour, the ACA and the Champions of Change Architecture Group for a special session on pay equity – just in time for Equal Pay Day. What is the data and what can we do to address pay inequity? Book now for an informative session with Gemma MacDonald of DKO and Linda Mason of Bates Smart, in conversation with Monica Edwards and Justine Clark.


New data from the forthcoming Parlour Census Report shows that pay gaps persist in architecture. There is good news – the gaps have reduced slightly, and the gap for people aged 25–29 has halved since the last Census. The shocking news is that new analysis shows that the the pay gap becomes a chasm when we take cultural background into account.

So, what can we do – as individuals, as practices and as a profession? The Champions of Change Architecture Group has developed a set of practical resources to support practices of all sizes to understand the pay gap and pay equity; to measure, analyse and assess the situation with their businesses; and to establish clear and coherent systems to address the pay gap.

Come along to find out more about the data and what it means, and to hear from two excellent studio managers about what can be done.
