Introducing Future Female Leaders

Last year EG ran a survey asking women of the built environment to tell us why we weren’t seeing enough female faces up on stage at industry events.

More than 200 women responded. The results, which we published earlier this year, showed that many lacked confidence or didn’t feel the panel was diverse enough (and often relevant enough) for them to feel comfortable being a part of.

A whopping 74% of respondents said they would like training to be offered as part of panel selection.

At EG we took the results of the survey seriously and pledged that we would do something about it – that we would continue with our endeavour to have mixed panels and that, through our REWIRE initiative, would seek to arrange more events that enable a wide spectrum of the industry to practice and hone their skills in a safe environment.

And that is exactly what we are doing.

The Future Female Leaders programme is an exciting learning and development initiative that EG will be delivering with expert provider Ginger Public Speaking. The four-month training course for 12 women from across the entire spectrum of real estate will enable our future leaders to learn how to be eloquent, engaging and powerful speakers.

The programme will see these dozen future female leaders work together to individually tell the story of the life of a building, and how each role in the built environment is vital to bring a property to life.

The event will culminate in the women delivering an engaging Ted Talk-style presentation at an EG event in front of a high-level real estate audience.
