Welcome to REWIRE

REWIRE is part of EG’s mission to help rewire the real estate industry to create a more diverse sector that enables everyone, regardless of gender, race, religion, background, sexuality, disability or age, access to a career in the built environment.

Initially launched as a club for women of all levels and all disciplines across the real estate sector to engage with one another, to find and be mentors/role models, learn new skills, build confidence and most importantly, pay it forward, REWIRE is evolving to provide a platform on all diversity issues.

REWIRE is about recognising and empowering the under-represented in real estate so that the next generation entering the profession do not need special clubs. Our goal is for REWIRE to become redundant.

100 years of women's suffrage
