The awards recognise women who continue to influence and change the landscape of the property industry.
SAWIPA not only honours their achievements but also acknowledges their contribution to the broader industry in terms of transformation and women’s participation in the sector.
The primary objective of the gala dinner is to raise funds for the Women in Property Educational Trust.
All funds raised, together with sponsorships from various companies, has resulted in the Educational Trust awarding over 100 bursaries to well-deserving female students to pursue property related studies since 2008.
