There are three categories which we want to focus on. These three factors depend on one another and cannot function without the other. The first is the CREATIVE part, which is inclusive of architects, master planners, interior designers, product designers and landscape designers. Those in the creative industries create the embryo of an idea that will depend on the next two parts to achieve realisation.
The second part is the TECHNICAL part, which is about engineering and construction and utilises the skills of civil engineers, structural engineers, HVAC engineers, electrotechnical engineers, envinronmental, BREEAM and LEED consultants, technical project managers, chartered surveyors and many others technical experts. This part focuses on responsibly and scientifically bringing the designed buildings into a realistic construction and built process.
The third and final part, is called the COMMERCIAL part, it is the most important factor, providing money to projects. This part includes the investors, Real Estate, Developers, Facility managers, Foundings, Finance. The third part ensures the realisation of the architect and technical teams workings by providing the finances needed to construct.

EUROPEAN WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP

„While the world is evolving,, women are still lagging behind when it comes to leadership roles in business.“ Written by forbes.sk in the article „15 Biggest Challenges Women Leaders Face and how to overcome them“.  Our website will be drawing from this quote as an opening for discussion in the next series of articles.

There is a perceived notion that the fight for gender equality in the workplace is progressing and prominent, yet In Europe, it appears that there are greater requirements placed upon women that make senior positions more challenging to obtain and also to keep.

AND WHAT ACTUALLY IS GENDER EQUALITY?

Gender equality is achieved when women and men enjoy the same rights and opportunities  across all sectors in society, including economic participation and decision-making. When the different behaviours , aspirations and needs of women and men are equally valued  and favoured, progress will have been made. Gender equality is measured by looking at the representation of men and women in a range of roles. The results of those measurements show us that (among other things) there are just a few women in top leadership roles in Europe. But why does the glass ceiling still remain in 21st century?

According to women, these are the main barriers that prohibit them becoming leaders in their workplace:

  • stereotypes and preconceptions of women’s roles and abilities, which can create a lack of respect from employees

  • Lack of senior or visibly successful female role models  
  • Lack of significant general managemenent or line experience
  • Commitment to family or personal responsibilities
  • Lack of mentoring
  • Sexual discrimination, harrassment, bullying and victimisation
  • Lacking the confidence and self belief to manage the challenges of senior positions
  • unwillingness  to travel and work far away from their family and country
