In her manifesto, Duncan pledged to accomplish three goals in her term as RIBA President: restore pride in being an architect and in the creative and influential work we do; drive up fees through campaigning for payment appropriate to skills and expertise; and improve diversity in the profession to ensure our long term financial success and sustainability.

Over the next year I will be working hard to support Stephen Hodder and visiting and talking to members and staff across the UK.”
