International Women’s Day – Embracing progression not regression

22 Minute Listen



From challenge comes change, so this International Women’s Day we’re choosing to challenge. The economic impact of COVID-19 has had a regressive effect on gender equality around the world – leaving women more exposed to job loss and taking on the bulk of childcare responsibilities. Despite this, the pandemic has also been a catalyst for major shifts that will help pave the way for great opportunities and greater gender parity.

In this episode of Talking Property, Phil Rowland CEO of CBRE’s Pacific Advisory Business sits down with Diana Mousina, Senior Economist at AMP Capital and Kathy Mac Dermott COO of the Property Council of Australia, to discuss the pandemic’s impact on gender equality and how Australia’s property sector is navigating towards an equal tomorrow.
