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.

    It is hard to know if under-represented groups should be encouraged into low status, low paid professions? And if they have unfortunately joined, if the best thing is to help them out and into better remunerated fields?

  • Never heard of her or had anything to do with her.

    What has she actually done that is so outstanding? Aren't all the things listed just what anybody is supposed to do as part of their normal job? What's she done that's so spectacular?

    I didn't think I needed 'promoting'. I just thought I was fully capable of standing on my own feet, creating my own path and delivering results.
