'Take off, tick over or exit?' is the strapline of the Women in Property Mid-Career Task Force, summarising the choices faced by many women juggling their mid stage careers. Since its launch, Task Force members have been working with businesses throughout the industry, in some cases developing bespoke programmes incorporating mentoring, women-returners, agile working unconscious bias, upskilling and refresher courses and the leaky talent pipeline.
