Women In Property

The Women In Property events are organised by a group of volunteers passionate about the industry, and run by Property Council New Zealand. The events are key networking forums to share views and ideas, be inspired and meet new and interesting people and make those connections so vital in doing business.

The number of women involved in the property sector is growing. Statistics show more than half of the graduates from engineering and property related degrees are female. Now is the time to foster this market and assist its growth.

A noticeable increase in the number of women participating in events throughout the property industry has been partially attributed to the success of the Women In Property network group and the support of over 500 members who attend Women In Property functions nationwide.


  • Information and inspiration: Showcasing successful Women In Property through speakers and events.
  • Networking opportunities: Providing a means to make key connections with industry people in a comfortable environment.
  • Increase participation: Target female industry professionals to increase industry participation to reinforce the linkages between Women In Property and their overall role in the property industry and related fields.
  • Assisting growth within this market segment: Connecting up and coming property professionals with those higher up within the industry to foster growth within this market segment.

The role of Women In Property is to provide career support for women entering and working in the property industry through:

  • A series of four networking events, held in alternate months, providing a key opportunity for the Women In Propertup to get together and make those connections so vital in doing business. These networking events also provide an opportunity to hear from and meet inspired women leaders in business in our 'Introducing Business Leaders' Series. The events are also an opportunity to have some fun - work hard and play hard
  • In addition to key networking opportunities up to two additional key events will be held throughout the year. These events will range from fun events to key industry events featuring inspirational women in business, sharing their ideas, industry information and passion.
  • The events are planned by Property Council New Zealand with the organising committee made up of the existing Women In Property Group of volunteers and Property Council New Zealand members.

Women In Property is open to any female in the property industry, regardless of Property Council membership and is available for a nominal annual fee. Women In Property membership runs in accordance with the financial year April - March.
