She Belongs Here (2020) There is a proven leaky pipeline of girls and young women falling away from AEC career paths. Biases start when we categorize children by gender, race, and ability, which kids usually begin to experience when they enter the education system. Throughout their lives, they are taught or exposed to biases, consciously or unconsciously. These gender stereotypes and biases often lead to girls thinking they can - not do or be certain things–like architects, engineers, or construction managers. In order to provide a real solution to the leaky pipeline, we need to start exposing all children to the wonderful world of AEC. #SheBelongsHere
