"As Liberty Two Degrees, we welcome the provisions of the Women’s Empowerment Principles as we believe that women have made important gains in representation and especially in senior leadership, which is certainly worth celebrating - however persistent gaps still exist. In the property industry, the composition of senior executives is still very much male-dominated and the executive director split by gender is indicative of significant progress still required in the sector. We need more senior women in key decision-making roles in order for visible and sustainable change to continue. As a business leader and one of the few women Chief Executives in the property industry, I am very proud to advocate for diversity to be fully embraced within Liberty Two Degrees as an aspect of the business that's vital to our vision, purpose and strategy, and as supported by our Board. We believe that men have a strong incentive to advocate for women's advancement, making sure that women succeed in the organisation. Women cannot do it alone, both men and women need to unite in challenging stereotypes and confronting bias, ensuring that we challenge each other to achieve this in this lifetime and for future generations" - Amelia Beattie, Chief Executive Liberty Two Degrees.
