The #IAMWOMAN campaign is a joint effort between our sister company Madison Berkeley and Black Women in Real Estate (BWRE) to attract more young black females into the real estate sector and retain them.
“The real estate industry has terrible female representation generally” says Nina Zeilerbauer, board director of Madison Lincoln and co-founder of real estate recruitment firm Madison Berkeley. “It stands at just 13%. Our industry is white, middle class and overwhelmingly male and we are working with Hanna Afolabi founder of BWRE (Black Women in Real Estate) to attract a more diverse workforce into our industry. Without it, the sector will stagnate because companies want a diverse workforce, but there are so few candidates who meet that criteria.”
Each day this week the #IAMWOMAN campaign run by @BWRE and @MadisonBerkeley will share a young #womenofcolour’s journey into the UK #realestate industry. How they got there, what they do, why they love it and most importantly how you can do it too.
