This is a fantastic initiative designed to introduce girls, who are still at school, to the career opportunities available in the housing and construction sectors.

WISH discovered that a lot of its members ‘fell into housing’ almost by accident and only 22% of the 100 largest Housing Associations are led by women. Women also make up only 13% of the construction sector. We felt that something needed to be done to increase the number of women in the sector as a whole and develop more young, dynamic leaders with an appetite for success and making a difference.

Change the face of housing is about encouraging female pupils to think about working in housing, showcasing the many diverse roles, and that anyone, regardless of their academic ability, can find a rewarding career. We have produced a great DVD of women talking about how much they enjoy their careers in housing, how they got into the sector and what a difference they make to people’s lives. WISH members will deliver a clear and informative presentation at their local schools which sets out the different careers available, features the DVD, an interactive quiz and fun giveaways.

“The real success will come from WISH members engaging with schools and the pupils, sharing our passion for the sector and hopefully encouraging lots of young women to think about housing as an exciting future career with lots of opportunities.” Debra Constance & Nicola Dibb
