 Women: Paving the Way – How women are taking on leadership roles in the built environment – 31st March 2015

Each time another historic milestone is met by a woman it paves the way for future generations. We believe that having three women presidents across Royal Institute of British Architects, Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and Royal Town Planning Institute at the same time is another important milestone to celebrate, presenting an opportunity to discuss and debate the state of play for women across the related professions.


Join Women in Planning to hear Jane Duncan (RIBA), Louise Brooke-Smith (RICS) and Janet Askew (RTPI) discuss their journeys to representing the built environment professions.



Janet Askew, President of the RTPI, Louise Brooke-Smith, President of the RICS and Jane Duncan, RIBA President Elect
