Named as one of the Best Places to Work by Sacramento Business Journal in 2019 and 2020, people represent the first and most important pillar of JKAE’s core values. The firm’s inclusive, collaborative and supportive environment for employees translates into better support for clients. “The foundation of our growth will continue to be driven by values of social equity embodied in our long- and short-term strategic planning efforts,” says Sherry Sajadpour, principal.
JKAE is proud of all its female employees and inherently believes its female principals and associates are the embodiment of the hard work, determination and tenacity needed to succeed in a traditionally male-dominated industry.
“At JKAE, we are honored to work alongside talented professional women and to create an environment which encourages dialogue about topics of relevance to women within the design profession,” says Sajadpour.
The JKAE team is grateful to be in a field that makes a positive impact with every project within the community. For the professional women from internship to leadership roles, the firm’s goal is to establish individualized plans for growth and exposure through mentorship, licensure support and networking opportunities that enable them to succeed based on their unique strengths and skill sets. “This approach creates a natural evolution allowing our female leaders to thrive while giving back to the profession and the community,” Sajadpour says.
In loving memory of one of our founding female leaders and accomplished architects, Barbara Crowell.
