The YesWePlan! project - an overview

The COMPENDIUM 4 in 1 is a comprehensive collection of all YesWePlan! Project Results and consist of four parts:

Promoting women in Architecture and Civil Engineering: Recommendations

The YesWePlan! Recommendations shall provide tools, methods, and approaches to address (structural) inequalities on different levels. Based on the different outcomes of the project survey that consisted of the YesWePlan! Country Situation Reports, the YesWePlan! Career Tracking System with and online survey and over 100 qualitative interviews and the collection of YesWePlan! Best Practise Examples, a number of concrete tools, methods, and approaches to increase gender equity in the fields of education and vocational training, professional representation and support and working conditions were developed.  They also take into account previous research and recommendations on national and European level and address Universities, professional chambers and organizations and employers.

Promoting women in Architecture and Civil Engineering – Country Situation Reports

The YesWePlan! Country Situation Reports are analyses that were carried out to provide better comparability between project partner countries. They analyse legal and practical gender equality frameworks and conditions and have a focus on gender-specific differences with regard to vocational training and professional practice.

Promoting women in Architecture and Civil Engineering – Career Tracker Report

The core of the project is the so-called YesWePlan! Career Tracker that was developed on the basis of the YesWePlan! Country Situation Reports and led to the implementation of a broad European online survey on gender equality issues with over a thousand responses. The survey was complemented by over a hundred qualitative interviews and the results build an excellent basis for the definition of relevant measures for the promotion of gender equity. They are reflected in the YesWePlan! Recommendations. The YesWePlan! Career Tracker will be re-used and promoted as an efficient tool to evaluate gender equality issues in professions.

Please note:
The Career Tracker consists of two instruments and is free for use:
A tailor-made questionnaire has been developed in 5 languages (English, German, French, Spain and Slovenian) and can be answered analogue or digitally. The master version was developed for the survey conducted within the course of the YesWePlan! project  and it is recommended to adjust the questionnaire to one’s specific demands, frameworks and objectives.

Please contact and you will be provided with digital copies of any of the online questionnaires you request, including all user rights.

In addition to the rather quantitative online survey, qualitative interviews should also be conducted in order to collect background information and to better understand contexts.

For this purpose, the YWP! Project Group has developed an  interview guide, which you can modify as you wish.

Promoting women in Architecture and Civil Engineering – Best Practise Examples Collection

The YesWePlan! Best Practise Examples, a collection of national best practise approaches to promote gender equity, was created to enable the project partners to learn from each other. Therefore, their transferability is an important aspect. A good example of a transferred best practise is the French ARVHA Women Architects Award, which annually honours outstanding works by women architects and which has now been transferred to Austria in a similar form.
