Empower Equity: Reah Huggins-Sutton and Vasiliki Arvaniti

Madison Berkeley’s Empower Equity reverse mentoring campaign supported by Ladies in Real Estate launches today with the aim of tackling the retention of females within our industry. It still remains stubbornly low which means we have a low percentage of females at senior level in the industry.

Each day this week we will bring you a 20-25 minute audio interview with a junior female within the real estate industry reverse mentoring a senior female in our industry. The focus will be ED + I and as you will hear no topics are off-limits. These audio interviews are a must-listen for everyone in the industry regardless of gender or seniority. We hope you will share it with your community as well as add your thoughts and comments to the conversation.

In this edition Vasiliki Arvaniti, Head of Asset Management at Derwent London, and Asset Manager at JLL, Reah Huggins-Sutton, discuss this:

“The industry has an image issue, it is such a diverse career choice with so many different and interesting parts to it however the real challenge is the difficult route into our industry which is stopping people from accessing it… let’s get out to schools and universities and create a better image, we need more apprenticeships.”
