Words by Ankita Bhowmick & Komal Pamwani in Company News · Mar. 8th, 2018
There is no better way to celebrate this day than to shine a light on the ladies who have contributed to the success of Luxhabitat through their talent, perseverance and continuous dedication.
Luxhabitat celebrates the spirit of women's day by paying an ode to the wonderful women leading the company to its success. Setting itself apart from most of their competitors, the representation of women at Luxhabitat defines women empowerment as well as women equality. Women hold key positions in the company where they are decision makers across a variety of functions - from sales to marketing.
The real estate industry is traditionally perceived as male dominated, but is now witnessing an incremental gender shift. From being only hired for client centered roles or in administration, women have managed to break the norms of gender inequality to hold strong and authoritative positions in the corporate sector; real estate industry being no exception to this.
Discussing the importance of International Women's Day, Oriol Font, the CEO of Luxhabitat said, "As we reach the International Women's day, I believe its a time to recognize the positive changes some of most recent movements like #metoo have made in bringing difficult topics to the forefront of the conversation. But at the same time, it's also important to reflect on how much change there is left to make to achieve true gender equality in our society."
