It's up to us to shine a light on the incredible women in our profession
When we lift each other up, we all get seen
I know what it's like to be a female surveyor. Although we make up 51% of the population, only 15% of surveyors are women and only 4% of those who have achieved RICS Fellowship are female.
There aren't many of us, but that doesn't mean we can't make an impact, inspire and support each other and be a role model for women looking to get into the business of surveying.
It's a topic I'm passionate about and this is simply a place to bring the amazing women in this profession of ours together. When we share stories, network and connect, lift each other up and get more visible, we all get seen.
I'm glad you're here.
Meet me at the water cooler...
I spent over two decades working in residential valuation and surveying, but when I looked around my company for female role models they were in very short supply.
I had lots of questions – such as what is it like going back to work after maternity leave, how do you juggle work and family, and how do you deal with your inner critic giving you a hard time - but no-one to ask.
I really wanted to hear stories from other women surveyors, and I wanted to share mine, because being one of only 15% can feel pretty lonely - so I set up a Women in Surveying group back in 2018 to break the isolation and bring female surveyors together.
I like to think of it as a big water cooler, giving us all the chance to gather around and learn from each other (without the pressure of attending networking events if that’s not your thing!). It’s a place to share our experiences, give and receive advice and support, and inspire other women to join this profession we all love.
