With female surveyors working all around the country, it’s pretty much impossible to get everyone together in one place at one time. So after kicking around on my own for way too long, I set up Women in Surveying as a way to break the isolation and bring female surveyors together.
It’s not an organisation or a charity. I like to think of it as one big water cooler, giving us the chance to gather around and learn from each other (without the pressure of attending networking events if that’s not our thing!).
It’s a place where we can share our experiences – both good and bad – and give and receive advice and support. I also hope that by banding together Women in Surveying will encourage and inspire other women to join our fantastic industry – and boost our numbers!
