Seeking to enhance the profile of women in the property and construction industry, Women in Property brings together professionals from property consultancies, construction companies, architects and designers, developers, housebuilders, engineers, planners, legal and financial specialists.
With nearly 300 members and hosting over 100 events per year, Ros plans to use the vast network to address diversity and the attraction and retention of female talent in the South West. With a current skills shortage in the industry, promoting the property sector as a great career option in schools is also on the organisation’s agenda.
“I am delighted to take on the role of chairman for 2019. This year, we want to give back even more to our valued members, supporting them in their career paths and creating inspiring and visible role models for the industry and for the next generation."
“We have seen a wave of successful national campaigns encouraging women to step up, recognise their professional worth and be seen. Building on the success of Women in Property’s initiatives to date, including our mentoring programme and last year’s panel debate training, we want to continue to give our members the guidance and opportunities they need to meet their career goals.”
