This International Women’s Day and every day, we are proud to recognize our inspiring women leaders and allies at JLL.
Who is a female inspiration/role model to you and why?
All the women I interact with, be it from any industry, are an inspiration. All those women who wake up every morning and strive to balance home and workplace responsibilities, inspire me. I admire the way women have climbed the corporate ladder taking on all challenges with a fighting spirit to survive and succeed at the same time.
Why does inclusion matter to you?
Inclusion is important, especially for women, because in addition to the competitive landscape at work, they also deal with societal stereotypes in their daily life. Therefore, having an inclusive atmosphere in the workplace creates a level playing field, which, in turn, creates equal opportunities for everyone.
How are you inspiring women to achieve their ambitions at JLL?
I encourage all the young women, who are starting their careers in JLL or who have been here for some time, to stay put and keep working hard. Like any other industry, real estate, too, has its challenges. Women need to be patient and have perseverance for a long-term career. Moreover, as diversity and inclusion is at the heart of JLL culture and practised daily, it is easier for me to motivate women around me and lead by example.
