    Camille Mitchell (BAS ’06, architectural studies; MArch ’10, architecture) is a highly accomplished architect with the Toronto based award-winning firm, Gensler. Her growing reputation in the field, though, goes beyond her professional expertise and achievements.  

    As a Black woman in the traditionally white, male dominated field of architecture, Mitchell has faced challenging perceptions regarding her capabilities as an architect. Her response has always been to prove them wrong through hard work, excellent results — and advocating for change.
