Clare Nash, an Oxford Brookes University tutor and Architect was appointed as a RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) Role Model.
Role Models are a great example of people who have overcome many different obstacles to become architects, proving that architecture can be for everyone.
As a Role Model, Clare supports the scheme from RIBA; she says that ‘diverse role models from different social and economic backgrounds are vital in proving that you are incredibly passionate about what you do, you can make it as an architect’. This promotes the idea of inclusion – because talent can be found in people from all kinds of backgrounds. RIBA also encourages firms to harvest talent and inspire young men and women to stick with architecture.
