This overview offers a point of view on the current state of women in the real estate industry, and what it will take to drive greater diversity.
Real estate may be a traditionally male-dominated business, but the organisations that will succeed tomorrow will need to break the mold by empowering women to break the glass ceiling.
Advancing women in the industry is an increasingly top-of-mind issue in real estate. Industry leaders are recognising that good investment decisions in today's fast-paced and competitive marketplace require a diversity of thought, ideas drawn from a broader range of experiences and perspectives. Meanwhile, socially conscious investors are demanding more diversity.
This paper, sponsored by KPMG's Real Estate practice in collaboration with the New York University Schack Institute of Real Estate, was inspired by a series of discussions with industry leaders about potential solutions to the problems female real estate professionals face in breaking into the business, developing professionally, and moving up the career ladder.
