BY MARGARET JACKSON, CONFLUENCE DENVER | Denver-based JG Johnson Architects is one of four architecture firms featured as a champion of equity on The Missing 32 Percent Project’s blog.
The Missing 32 Percent Project is a study of the equitable treatment of all architects across the gender gap. The American Institute of Architects reports that only 19 percent of its roughly 81,000 members were women as of June and only 12 percent of women architects serve as supervisors or licensed employers in architecture firms.
But JG Johnson Architects is bucking that trend. Of the firm’s 31 employees, 58 percent are women, 62 percent are in leadership positions and 77 percent are licensed architects.
