WiP - the Organisation
As an organisation, WiP believes that success and its rewards should be founded on merit and expertise, rather than gender. When the day comes that women are equally represented alongside our male colleagues across property and construction, we know we will have achieved our goal.
Our members are drawn from across the many different property disciplines, from architecture to engineering, planning to surveying. Hence we have representation from a wide and knowledgeable industry base and from women at all levels, whether under-graduates, senior partners or Chief Executives.
WiP - the structure
WiP has ten regional branches. Each is managed by a committee of volunteers, drawn from the local area and representing many different disciplines. Each region is responsible for its own finances, reporting to the National Steering Group.
At a national level, a new National Chairman is nominated each year. She heads up the National Steering Group, which meets quarterly and itself comprises the National Vice Chairman and the Chairmen of each of the branches.
There are four part-time salaried consultants, all of whom work remotely. They are the Executive Director, National Treasurer, National Communications Consultant and National Membership Administrator and they can be contacted here.
