Dexus celebrates success with agency partners at the 2016 Dexus Excellence in Agency Awards
Dexus (Dexus) last night celebrated its 23rd Excellence in Agency annual awards which recognise the outstanding achievements of the real estate community and their contribution to Dexus’s successful performance over the 2016 financial year.
For the first time, recognising Dexus’s commitment to gender diversity in the industry, the winner of the inaugural Female Agent of the Year award was announced, celebrating the contribution of women in property.
Dexus CEO, Darren Steinberg said: “As an advocate for change, I see property as a great career path for both men and women and it is important that we are supporting the diversity agenda in a number of ways. We believe that this award will encourage everyone in the industry to promote and support women into property leasing and transaction related roles.”
The Female Agent of the Year Award will be presented only for two years, after which the intended impact would have normalised women’s participation in property leasing and transactions.
Darren Steinberg added: “A key consideration for us when appointing agents is gender diversity in teams, and it’s pleasing to see that this year there was a noticeable increase in the number of women nominated across all of our award categories.”
