500 Women in Property is an exciting initiative of the Property Council of Australia’s state Diversity committees to cultivate women in the sector. Slattery is delighted to take part again, which sees Property Council members take on a personal commitment to champion a woman in their organisation or business sphere who they believe will benefit from further networking and professional development opportunities. 500 Women in Property participants are mentored and invited to attend events with their sponsor, enabling them to meet and build relationships across the sector. In 2018 Managing Director, Sarah Slattery and Director, Clients & Strategy Belinda Coates sponsored two future leaders, Nancy Duarte from Shape and Sally Fielder from Architectus. In 2019, five of Slattery’s team have been chosen to participate in this year’s program, Sushma Suresh, Lisa Phoa, Tegan White, Siobhan Walsh and Felicia Lase; with their mentors, Sarah Slattery, Mark Cathie, James Dennis and Mark Pickerill. Belinda Coates, who sits on the PCA Diversity Committee (Vic) said, ‘it’s wonderful to see how the program has flourished in such a short time and for our team to be involved.’ 500 Women in Property runs from March to December each year.
