PRP's Cathy Stewart wins Women in the City award
Architect honoured for encouraging other women
Cathy Stewart, who heads PRP’s higher education sector, won the built environment category at this year’s Women in the City Awards.
The judges praised Stewart for the “outstanding” role she has played in promoting women in the industry, as well as for her professional achievements.
She has actively sought to develop new business in different sectors and established new products to reflect the changing economic climate, while also achieving an enviable level of work-life balance, they said.
Gwen Rhys, founder of the Women in the City awards, added: “Cathy is a phenomenal role model for women working in the built environment, and more generally in the business world, and will be a great ambassador for the awards.”
Women make up only 15% of the workforce in the property and construction industry and the awards seek to redress this imbalance.
