Good governance is crucial to our industry’s future. Diverse boards are more likely to be effective, make better quality decisions, and be better able to understand the people they serve. Building a thriving New Zealand means all of us having a seat the table.

Join us over lunch as four Women in Property share their governance journey, including the challenges faced, achievements gained and how you too can grab hold of opportunities as they arise. Featuring Lorraine Kendrick, Beca; Charlotte Muggeridge, Harkness Henry; Bronwyn Rhynd, CKL NZ Ltd; and Kate Searancke, Tompkins Wake, these wahine toa will leave you feeling inspired and ready to ‘lean in’!

Take this chance to break bread with fellow property professionals as we champion a property industry where we all belong.
