Nous avons le plus grand plaisir à vous inviter à une soirée de réseautage destinée aux professionnels les plus performants, les plus avertis, les plus éthiques et les plus productifs du secteur - des courtiers et acteurs immobiliers comme vous.


La soirée commence à 19h30 et aura lieu à “The Travellers”, 25 avenue des Champs Elysées, Paris.
Tenue de ville exigée (une veste et cravate pour les hommes) selon les règles du club.

The SIOR Europe Diversity and Inclusion Committee held a webinar to mark International Women's Day, which this year has the theme of ‘break the bias’. The inspirational discussion focused on championing women in real estate and finding positive ways to empower more women to join the industry and stay to build fulfilling careers.

Chaired by Andrea Carpenter, Director of Women Talk Real Estate, we welcomed an expert panel of women who shared their unique perspectives and experiences – Katie Whipp, head of Deepki, Sonja Beier, Counsel at DLA Piper, Nicola Mottershaw, Partner at Vail Williams, and Małgorzata Kalinowska - Klimek, VP Franchise Operation Poland & Eastern Europe at Accor.

The session kicked off with participants relaying what prompted them to enter the industry and find their own place within it. We heard how Nicola was encouraged to become a chartered surveyor by her father. She wanted variety, problem solving and transactional work, and occupier advisory ticked all the boxes. Małgorzata studied hospitality in Poland, being promoted over many years as she worked for numerous hotels. For Katie, it was not a conscious decision – her real estate journey stemmed from being open to opportunities she came across in London. Sonja, too, was not aware of the industry before her internship as a corporate lawyer, which led her to the real estate team.

They shared the changes they have seen for women in their part of the market. All agreed that there has been positive progress.

We then explored what is hindering more female participation and progress in real estate.

Looking ahead – the panel agreed that we must act to encourage more women into the industry. When asked what advice they would give their former selves and other women, responses ranged from remembering to celebrate achievements, to finding what you are most passionate about and not doubting yourself because it is not a traditionally female-dominated area. Recognise that you have a voice that matters, talk to people and seek the necessary support along the way.

Renata Osiecka, Managing Partner at AXI Immo Group, concluded the session by highlighting that, while it is uplifting to see more women in business and leadership positions, there is still room for improvement in encouraging young women to join the sector. We must lead by example and show that diversity is an asset that adds value to companies, the industry and society.

At Tuesday 23rd November's SIOR Europe webinar on climate change and sustainability, we welcomed a group of specialist participants representing a broad spectrum of disciplines within the real estate sector from across Europe.

 

What followed was an illuminating discussion – asking key questions on what needs to happen next for the built environment to deliver on the goals made at COP26, with our panellists sharing their unique perspectives, experiences and solutions to shape a way forward.

Introduced and hosted by Renata Osiecka, Managing Partner at AXI Immo Group, andexpertly moderated by Greg Borel, Founder & Director of Ampersand Partners and organiser of CUBE in the UK, we were joined by Laura Kelly – Director at PwC, Ann Marie Aguilar – SVP EMEA at International WELL Building Institute, Fabian Mühlen – Partner at DLA Piper, who spoke to us from Frankfurt, and Jennifer Taranto – Director of Sustainability at STO Building Group.

 

The workshop kicked off with the vital question. Given that one of the major takeaways from the recent COP26 climate summit was the need for immediate action rather than talking about commitments to sustainability, the webinar started with what needs to happen now? How do we translate the grand plans made at COP26 into tangible impact in the short-term?

 

 

Panellists shared interesting insights on industry trends they are seeing:

 

 

The session closed with the question of where is collaboration needed most? Answers ranged from co-operating with third party ESG frameworks and environmental ratings bodies, more R&D into electrification and other energy efficiencies in construction, setting mutual climate objectives with tenants, transparency with the market and peers, and leading by example with responsible procurement and client intake (i.e. working with those who demonstrate their commitment to climate and ESG factors).

 

The overarching conclusion? We all need to think beyond our own organisations, as the only way to deliver on the promise of COP26 is through collective endeavour.
