“Our alumni and [Challenge] Fellows are making an impact across various sectors and communities. One sector where they are driving change is architecture. According to the American Institute of Architects (AIA), over 70% of registered architects identify as male, making architecture a male-dominated field. At Challenge Detroit, over the last 11 years, most of our applicants with an architecture background have identified as women, and of 24 total architecture [Challenge] Fellows, 20 have been women—that’s over 83%! We are so grateful to be in partnership with our host company employers—especially Quinn Evans, Mosher Dolan, and SmithGroup who have hosted multiple architecture [Challenge] Fellows—in playing a part to support women with architecture opportunities to grow in their careers. While some alumna have taken multi-disciplinary career steps utilizing their architecture skill sets, many have continued their careers in prominent and exciting architecture roles.”

Meet the current Challenge fellows and alumni here.
