New Yorkshire & North East Chair named for Women in Property

Kate Girling has been named as the new Chair for the Yorkshire and North East branch of Women in Property for 2021/22.

She takes the role as regional head of the property and construction industry influencer and networking organisation for one year.

Ms Girling, who has been a member of Women in Property for 12 years and on the committee for three, is a Senior Planner at Rural Solutions based in Skipton.

In her forthcoming year, she will help grow the work Women in Property has been doing across the country, addressing workplace issues including flexible working patterns, mentoring women at all stages in their career, supporting women returners and mental wellbeing.

“It has been a very difficult year for a lot of people, as we have all had to adapt to change and tackle new challenges,” she said.

“I am looking forward to working with the committee over the next 12 months to continue to offer our support to members and provide a great programme of events.

“Great strides have been made in this industry, but we know work still needs to be done to challenge stereotypes, celebrate diversity, champion role models and achieve a more balanced workplace.”

Since the pandemic started early in 2020, Women in Property has continued to support members, transferring CPD, informal events and mentoring online.

Taking to the virtual world, Women in Property successfully ran over 100 events, of which Yorkshire and the North East hosted 15, ranging from seminars on topics such as Modern Methods of Construction, virtual site visits and events focused on wellbeing and mental health.
