An important read on “the future for women in the built environment and land”

Amanda Clack, RICS President Elect tells Womanthology why diversity is a strategy and a source of competitive advantage, not an issue

Just got done reading this: Surveying the future for women in the built environment and land: Diversity is a strategy and a source of competitive advantage, not an issue – Amanda Clack, RICS President Elect – Womanthology

Amanda Clack is the president elect of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors

The topics discussed include

  • The importance of diverse talent
  • Redressing the gender balance
  • Diversity as an advantage
  • Engaging women and girls

This article has many great examples of how “Diversity is a strategy and a source of competitive advantage, not an issue” and I think it definitely worth reading.

The article is from Womanthology a “digital magazine and community for working women.” I just signed up for their newsletter and their Twitter feed.

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. My lab is in the UC Davis Genome Center and I hold appointments in the Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology in the School of Medicine and the Department of Evolution and Ecology in the College of Biological Sciences. My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis (see my lab site here which has more information on lab activities).  In addition to research, I am heavily involved in the Open Access publishing and Open Science movements.
