Girls in Property

Home Events & Learning Programs Girls in Property

Girls in Property raises awareness among high school students of the various career paths available across the property industry. It aims to generate a more diverse pipeline of talent by encouraging more women into the sector.

Following a successful pilot project in NSW in 2017, the Property Council rolled out the Girls in Property program nationally in 2018. Over 1,500 students have participated nationally in the program since its launch.

Students gain insights into the industry, hear from industry leaders about what a career in property looks like, the challenges and opportunities they might face and the variety of jobs on offer.

The students also focus on why the industry is so important to the social and economic development of Australia, and have the opportunity to attend site tours of new developments.
