Women in Property Mentoring Program

The Property Council of Australia will be running its sixth annual Women in Property Leadership Mentoring Program for 2019. The goal of this structured and interactive program is to help promote and develop women for senior leadership roles in the property industry.

The program facilitates a mentoring relationship between professional women in middle to senior management with senior leaders (men and women), who have a genuine passion and interested in shifting culture within their organisation and the industry.

Women remain underrepresented in leadership, comprising only 28% of leadership positions versus 52% in non-leadership roles. Research by the Property Council of Australia and EY finds that both men and women believe a lack of diversity in senior leadership is a key deterrent.

The Property Male Champions of Change, comprising CEOs & Directors across 21 companies, have made a public commitment to achieve gender diversity in the property industry by taking action. These include:

  • Strengthening personal leadership on gender equality;
  • Sponsoring women to succeed; and
  • Building an inclusive culture and industry.


As a mentee, establishing the most successful pairing of mentor and mentee is key to the program. The matching process is rigorous and draws upon extensive information, gathered from mentees and mentors. Understanding your career goals, objectives for the program, as well as thinking style is critical to the success of the match.

The program will include six facilitated workshops for mentees between March and September, as well as six to eight one-on-one sessions with your mentor over the course of the program.
