'Surveying the Future' was launched when Louise Brooke-Smith, the RICS's first female President, took the reins last year.
In the RICS' words…
"Surveying the Future aims to demonstrate the breadth and range of careers within property, land and construction and attract more talent to the industry from people with diverse backgrounds.
The campaign was launched because the industry continues to be white, middle class and male dominated. Currently only 13% of chartered surveyors and 28% of trainees are women and across the whole of the construction sector, employing over 2.5 million people, women comprise just 11%."
Surveying the Future adds the RICS' voice to the meaningful debate on social mobility, the trajectory of female career paths from classroom to boardroom, looking at what impact careers information and advice has in the classroom and exploring how industry careers are portrayed in the media, this last through its 'Visible Women' campaign. WiP is proud to be involved in both campaigns.
