Podcast: Shaping London – The Women Who Define Our Spaces

In our latest podcast marking International Women’s Day, we explore the vital role that women play in central London’s property sector and how women have and are shaping our city.

Featuring interviews with policymakers, industry and thought leaders from across the Alliance’s network, speak about the importance of gender equity in London’s real estate industry and how women are changing the design of places and spaces in central London. We also discuss what a more diverse industry could mean for London’s future.

This podcast features Gudrun Andrews (Head of Planning Policy, City of London Corporation), Katy Ghahremani (Partner, Make Architects & WPA Board member), Deborah Saunt (academic, CPA Board member & Founding Director, DSDHA), Niamh Sutherland (CPA NextGen committee member & Principal Engineer, Momentum Transport Consultancy) and Professor Tony Travers (Director, London School of Economics and Political Science); hosted by the Alliance’s Alice Dale (Communications Manager).
