The Property Male Champions of Change (PMCC) project continues to drive progress towards its goal of tackling the unacceptably low levels of women in leadership positions across the property industry and the inadequate pace of change.
Managing Director, Global Real Estate at QIC, Steven Leigh continues to work with 20 other senior executives from organisations around Australia in a project initially established in 2015 by the Property Council of Australia.
Within QIC, we already have made significant strides on our own initiatives and goals, guided by the recommendations generated thus far by the PMCC’s action groups toward providing a supported, engaged and diverse workforce.
In the past year, QIC’s gender diversity progress report indicates we have achieved improved gender equality balance across all levels of the organisation. This is reflected clearly within QICGRE, with improvements seen across all key areas of the division, including a 72% increase in key female management personnel and a 30% increase in senior managers when compared to last year.
|Key Management Personnel||22%||38%||+72%|
Other important changes underway within QIC include:
A key focus for the coming year will be the launch of a pilot program called ‘Inclusive Leadership’. Involving male and female leaders from across the business, this program aims to support and better enable our managers to build their skills in creating and managing flexible, diverse and inclusive teams.
