The Property Council is committed to building a diverse and inclusive industry.

The Champions of Change Coalition – Property Group was established in 2015 and today includes 22 members who lead some 35,000 employees, in 9 jurisdictions. 
This includes establishing and funding the Property Champions of Change Coalition who are working to achieve a significant and sustainable increase in the number of women in senior leadership positions in the property industry. The initiative builds on the transformational work achieved by the founding Champions of Change Coalition, established in April 2010 by Elizabeth Broderick, the Sex Discrimination Commissioner of the Australian Human Rights Commission. 

The Property Council has Diversity and Inclusion Committees across Australia and their work includes conducting female mentoring programs, research initiatives, new event formats and professional development initiatives. 

The Property Council is targeting a 40% attendance rate of women. 

The 500 Women in Property program involves a personal commitment from Property Council members to champion women in their organisation or business sphere, who they believe would benefit from further networking and professional development opportunities.
