In March 2023, Parlour will conduct a nation-wide campaign to increase the number of women and gender diverse built environment professionals represented on Marion’s List, and we want your help!

With over 700 profiles online right now, we aim to have well over 1,000 by the end of the program. This will be followed by a campaign to encourage the use of Marion’s List in public forums and media later in 2023.

Marion’s List is our public register of women and gender diverse professionals active in architecture and the built environment. As part of our November campaign, we encourage the Parlour Collective and wider Parlour community to advocate among peers, consultants and networks to help get more people and profiles up on Marion’s List.

Why a campaign and workshops?

Marion’s List is very successful – many people are already on the list, and many people and organisations use it. It is an important resource, and provides an expanded image of architects and built environment professionals. But there are more people to include.

It is always more fun to do things together! Some people have been putting off uploading their profile for a while – not enough time in the day, feel a bit shy, don’t have a good bio to use as the base, can’t find a good photograph, the list goes on. Others have been too busy to update their profile with their latest roles or achievements. Coming together in a friendly, supportive and convivial environment helps with all of this. It is also another chance to meet new people and keep building existing relationships and networks!

Great, how do we get involved?
