While women make up over half of the field at graduation, they only constitute between 15 and 18% of licensed architects and firm leadership.

Take part in this 6-week ‘bootcamp’ to learn the skills and frameworks necessary to face this challenge. During these practical sessions female designers will learn to celebrate their value, how to communicate and negotiate with confidence, and be proactive about career ambitions.

Created and facilitated by landscape architect Mia Scharphie, The Build Yourself+ Workshop is a highly personal training in the skills and inner confidence that female designers need to succeed in the industry and allied professions.

Through a unique, challenge-based format, we teach skills and frameworks for:

  • advocating for yourself;
  • identifying the value you bring;
  • communicating and negotiating with confidence; and
  • being proactive about your desires and trajectory.

The Build Yourself+ Workshop is an opportunity to invest in yourself and your professional and personal development, while building a network of supportive women doing the same.
