Women's Property Network
The Women’s Property Network (WPN) arose out of a need to recognise women in the commercial and industrial property industry. The WPN's vision is to actively promote the interests of women in the property industry of South Africa by creating a dynamic environment with effective leadership to enhance the development, empowerment and upliftment of its members, with a mission that states:
“WPN will dedicate itself to furthering the success of its members by effectively sourcing the best possible opportunities through transformation, leadership, mentorship, networking, analysis and dissemination of information.”
The need has now risen for the organisation to expand its membership base and become more inclusive. Thus, seeking to attract all women from all levels actively involved in the commercial property industry.
In line with its strong corporate social initiatives, the organisation is looking to provide further education to women in the commercial property sector. In addition it seeks to actively support black women and aid all junior women to grow in the industry and further their career objectives. In order to achieve this, Women's Property Network Educational Trust ("Trust") IT 2007/2008 was established. To date the Trust has financially supported over 25 students with 13 currently in the program. The women that have successfully completed their studies have been employed in the industry and are working hard at advancing their careers. However, with the current challenging economic condition, it has become more difficult to secure funds for the Trust and hence the appeal to the general public to support the Trust be purchasing an entry into the 2016 Old Mutual Two Oceans Half Marathon.
