DALLAS, TX — October 30, 2023 —Thrasher Works, LLC, a professional architectural practice focused on creative design and adept solutions located in Dallas, Texas, is proud to announce its recent certification as a Women Business Enterprise (WBE) through the North Central Texas Regional Certification Agency (NCTRCA).
The standard of certification through NCTRCA requires a very meticulous process. This involves a thorough in-depth review of the business to include firm formation, operational processes, and business documents. The NCTRCA process is thorough for a reason, as its main goal is to confirm a business is at least 51% owned, operated, controlled, and managed by a woman (or women).
Karen Thrasher, Principal Architect and founder of Thrasher Works, LLC emphasizes how women in the architectural field are traditionally underrepresented. Data shows that today almost half of the students in architectural programs in the US are women, a progressive increase since the 1970s. However, the number of women that become registered architects, achieve upper management levels, become partners and own architectural firms has not increased at the same rate or in the same proportion as their male architectural counterparts. Currently only 17 percent of registered architects are women.
