Onstage for a recent talk on women in architecture, Tiffany Brown makes an arresting figure with her sleek long bob, precision-cut bangs, and white crepe cap-sleeved top. Seeing her at the podium, one would think she’s never been mistaken for anyone but the boss, but Brown tells it differently: When she goes to a build site, dressed down and in a hard hat, she’s not immediately recognized as the person there to sign paychecks — she’s sometimes mistaken as the cleaning lady.
