Is Retention Really A Gender Issue Exclusive To Women?

I'm an advocate of Women's Issues and achieving balance in leadership, however, I don't think "retention" is an issue EXCLUSIVE to women in architecture in this day and age. How many men have been forced into exodus from architecture in recent years? It's a time in our generation's history where newly grads or interns, regardless of gender, couldn't get the exposure to practice in the profession because of scarce opportunities. This is time, as a profession, we will never get back and we'll only begin to see the effects when it creates a void of architects with a specific skill set, years later when construction picks up and we're in need of them. RETENTION in architecture industry is NOT a gender issue. LACK OF BALANCE in leadership is.
