Diversity Committees

The Property Council’s Women and Diversity committees are focused on increasing the participation of women in the industry and the number of women in leadership roles through providing and championing specific networking, professional development and mentoring opportunities.

Our commitment to diversity

Being a member of a Property Council Committee helps you make an important contribution to the industry as well as build your professional network, market knowledge and profile. In 2016, we have set a participation target of 40% women, 40% men and 20% discretionary because we know the best discussions, thinking and productivity occurs when there is diversity.
