There are almost eight billion people in the world today, of whom over half live in urban areas. Women make up 49.58% of the world’s population and groups labelled ‘minorities’ are actually the global majority. So-called ‘minority’ women are massively underrepresented in most professional fields and industries, and architecture is no exception. The authors of our built environments are largely unreflective of the populations they serve. Black Females in Architecture (BFA) is a social enterprise supporting a membership of more than 450 Black women in built environment professions worldwide. The group advocates for diversity and race and gender equity across all sectors of the built environment, including architecture, urbanism, landscape, engineering, design, and construction. This film is a celebration of the ongoing contributions of Black women in the built environment fields, showing the world how they contribute to shaping the future of our cities.
