We added our support at a high-profile industry event that was part of a regional drive in the north of England to encourage more women into the property sector.
The Oracle in Leeds was the venue for the occasion on Thursday July 16th attended by up to 150 people from across Yorkshire’s property industry.
Our North region is jointly sponsoring the property and construction initiative in partnership with Taylor Wimpey plc and The Association of Women in Property (WIP). We recently acquired Shepherd Homes and opened a new satellite office in Wetherby.
Jennifer Winyard, Linden Homes strategic land and planning manager, is active on the WIP committee and was the last Yorkshire & North East branch chairman.
She said: “This event presents us not only with the opportunity to try and attract more women into the property sector, but will allow Linden Homes to further raise our profile in the region and for us to publicise our expansion into West Yorkshire and the integration of Shepherd Homes, and to generally promote ourselves in the Yorkshire market.”
“Women still represent only 15 per cent of the property and construction industry workforce. The Association of Women in Property is working with businesses and other industry organisations to help redress this balance.”
