In celebration of International Women’s Day and in honour of the contribution that women make in what is still a male-dominated industry, Anna Thomas, COO of Stockdale & Leggo, hosted Real Women in Real Estate, a one day Leadership Workshop just for women. Held on 26th February and facilitated by Mindset & Peak Performance Coach Tanja Jones, CEO of TMJ Coaching and Founder of Real Women in Real Estate, the day saw over 50 women come together to explore ways to thrive in business while remaining authentically them.
“It is my strong belief that we need to support the women in our organisation, to help them grow,” states Anna Thomas. Anna believes that by helping all employees grow, Stockdale & Leggo will also naturally grow; and the first step in achieving this is by supporting the women of the group who are already contributing so much.
Statistics show that women make up slightly more than half of total employment in the real estate industry and yet are still underrepresented in managerial roles and professional roles.
“This day was all about giving back to the women. It is a chance to acknowledge the contribution they make, unearth their current realities, reveal their desired futures and provide empowered leadership training that will enable them to produce breakthrough results both personally and professionally,” said Tanja Jones.
Rik Rushton, Head of Strategy, Education and Training at Stockdale & Leggo, reaffirms that women can have a brilliant career and lead the way within real estate whilst maintaining a work-life balance.
