Girls in Property
The Girls in Property program for 2019 kicked off on 23 May at Western Sydney University’ City Campus in Parramatta, with 300 girls of diverse backgrounds from 13 public girls’ schools taking part in the program. 11 of the schools participating are from the Wollongong/Sydney region and two in the Hunter region.
The participating schools are Cheltenham Girls High, Northern Beaches Secondary College Mackellar Girls, Riverside Girls High, Asquith Girls High, Burwood Girls High, Randwick Girls High, Bankstown Girls High, Liverpool Girls High, Auburn Girls High, Strathfield Girls High, Dapto High, Hunter River High and St Pius X High. Both programs run from 23 May to 20 June 2019.
The objective of the Girls in Property program is to raise awareness of female participation in the industry, increase exposure to the various careers available to women in the property industry and to help high school-aged girls make informed choices about a career in property in the future.
Now in its third year, Girls in Property brings together the biggest property companies to work closely with schools, universities and the NSW Government to experience world class property developments and work on real life property projects.
Sessions will take place across three days on 23 & 27 May and 20 June. Some of the activities the students will be involved in include:
- Learning about women leaders in property, their careers and university education
- Developing projects with industry members in which they will then present to their schools
- A range of industry site tours in across Sydney CBD, with a keynote address from City of Sydney Lord Mayor, Clover Moore.
- Attending an awards event and Property Council Industry Business Lunch.
We hope that through this initiative, we can foster a pipeline of talent into the industry. Read more about the Girls in Property program here.
