Diversity and Community programs at The Property Congress


diversity and community programs

The Property Council is committed to building a diverse and inclusive industry.

 Property Male Champions of Change

Property Male Champions of Change

This includes establishing and funding the Property Male Champions of Change who are working to achieve a significant and sustainable increase in the number of women in senior leadership positions in the property industry. The initiative builds on the transformational work achieved by the founding Male Champions of Change group, established in April 2010 by Elizabeth Broderick, the Sex Discrimination Commissioner of the Australian Human Rights Commission.

The Property Council has also formed Women in Property and Diversity Committees across Australia and their work includes conducting female mentoring programs, research initiatives, new event formats and professional development initiatives.

The Property Council is targeting a 40% attendance rate of women at 2021's Property Congress.
