DivAirCity H2020

Women in City Making

The first of our 2023 programme of free virtual events, ‘Women in City Making’ explored issues of gender equity, diversity and inclusion in the built environment sector.

The event formed part of EQN’s work on DivAirCity, an EU funded project which spans across 5 European cities; Aarhus (Denmark), Bucharest (Romania), Castellón (Spain), Orvieto (Italy) and Potsdam (Germany). We were delighted to welcome delegates, both men and women, from 19 different countries across the globe.

We will hold an event every 3 months for the duration of the project which will act as a catalyst to expand our network into these cities, hopefully leaving a legacy and a drive for lasting change long after the project finishes.

Chaired by EQN’s founder Caroline Cole, the 90-minute-long event brought together a panel of leading experts from the industry to discuss a variety of topics and case studies including sustainability, safe spaces for young girls and urban development as well as others. This was followed by a thought provoking Q&A session.

The panel included Peter Murray (New London Architecture), Mina Hasman (Skidmore, Owings and Merrill), Susannah Walker (Make Space for Girls), Chris Williamson (Weston Williamson and Partners) and Lily Lin (Mark).
