Mark Faithfull, editor of Retail Property Analyst, says: "This completely new event is dedicated to helping women in retail real estate to learn, progress and network with their peers in a format that will be like no other.”
Long before events started to be aware that man-panels were a thing, RPA had set out to gender balance our events as best we could.
Not because it was the right thing to do, but because not setting out to do it would have denied our audiences some amazing presentations by amazing people.
It's not always been easy, more often that not because we got push-back from the women we approached (that's a subject for another day), but the hard work we put in has enabled us to help introduce a brilliant set of women in retail to the speaking circuit, most of whom got rightly snapped up to speak at ICSC, Revo, World Retail Congress and MAPIC among others.
It's been my intention to create something dedicated solely to celebrating women in retail real estate for some years and the delay has been because we want to do something very different. We'll be announcing what we've come up with very soon.
It won't be solely for women but will be for anyone wanting to understand how best to promote the role of gender diversity in the retail and real estate market. Oh, and there will be a few surprises. And it will be fun.
Hosted by Mark Faithfull, editor of Retail Property Analyst, he says: “We’ll be covering a huge amount of territory during the day, designed to introduce attendees to a host of people and ideas that can help your career and deliver a better shopping experience for your consumers.”
