MPC launched its #genderchampions campaign in 2018 as a way to encourage men to help campaign for better gender balance in the property and development industries.
At MPC we have always strived to have a gender balanced workforce, including at senior levels, and we have held an annual women’s event for female clients and colleagues. But we realised that to effect real change in our industry, we need male colleagues to be engaged in the issue as well. So we’ve launched out #genderchampions campaign, where we’ll be asking colleagues, clients and industry contacts to sign up to our three point pledge, to:
Commit to improving gender diversity in their own organisations
Speak out about gender balance at events they are organising or attending
Encourage female colleagues to give their views on how to improve gender balance
We hope to find 100 gender champions by the time we meet in November 2019 – so let us know if you’d like to sign up to support our campaign!
