The Property Council established the Property Male Champions of Change in 2015 to drive greater gender equality in the property industry and increase the number of women in leadership roles.
The Property Male Champions of Change is convened by business leader Carol Schwartz AM, former Property Council National President, and brings together senior leaders across the industry’s development and construction, investment, funds management and agency sectors to take action to improve gender equality in the industry.
The formation of the Property Male Champions of Change builds on the Property Council's diversity program and is a public commitment by the Champions to use their individual and collective leadership to increase gender equality with a focus on leadership, talent development, public advocacy and accountability.
The group’s foundation actions include leading on gender reporting in the property sector, normalising flexibility and caring, growing the talent pool, closing the gender pay gap and building an inclusive industry.
The Property Male Champions of Change are part of the Male Champions of Change Community of Practice that includes the Founding National Group, the Victorian group, Elite Sports group and the Architects group. There are now over 180 male champions across Australia.
