Accessing PCWA mentoring

11 Jun 2015

PCWAAccess Housing’s Property Services Manager Nicole Neild is one of just 15 specially selected participants in the Property Council (WA)’s inaugural Women in Property mentoring program.

The program has welcomed 30 mentors and mentees from WA’s property sector to embark on a five month program coordinated by leadership consultants Serendis.

The program focuses on women who are aspiring to senior leadership positions in the property sector and matches them with senior leaders within the industry. This program differentiates itself from other mentoring experiences through experiential, interactive workshops with mentees, facilitated group discussions with mentors and a rigorous matching process. The structured program helps mentees address their personal and professional challenges, but also help raise the mentors’ awareness on how they, as leaders of this industry, need to help change the culture.

This program has been successfully piloted by the Property Council in NSW over the last two years.

In addition to Nicole’s selection as a mentee, Access Housing CEO Garry Ellender and General Manager – Property Assets Su Groome are also participating as program mentors.
