Does anyone else feel like white male privilige is alive and well when it comes to testing to become a licensed architect with NCARB? I feel like the language in the testing (white upper class), the inability to get the neccesary work experience when not allowed to sit at the table (white boys only), the inflexibility in testing schedule (weekends booked out months in advance) all work to reinforce white male privilige in the industry. What has been your experience? Has anybody attempted to do anything about it? I just called NCARB and the only "reasoning" I could get was that it used to be a lot worse, so I should be happy with the way things are now. I'm not.
The time for change is now, but how?
