Speaking Her Voice: Women in Landscape Architecture


2019 Annual WASLA Conference

Tacoma, WA


Dorothy Faris

Date & Time:

03.22.2019 | 4:15 pm–5:15 pm

A 2016 ASLA article stated women make up almost 50% of graduates from accredited institutions and LARE candidates, but only 36% of ASLA membership and 19% of ASLA fellows are women. If access to education is not the problem, what is driving women away from
the profession long term?

Join Mithun principal Dorothy Faris for “Speaking Her Voice: Women in Landscape Architecture” to hear perspectives of women from different professional levels, discuss how leadership is taught and inspired in female landscape architects, and discuss how women are redefining success by expanding the practice beyond the traditional role of landscape architects.

Dorothy’s co-presenters include Cascade Design Collaborative project manager Liz Browning, Fischer Bouma Partnership principal Sandra Fischer, and University of Washington landscape architecture Ph.D. candidate Sara Jacobs.
