Nominate Now For The Women In Housing Awards 2018

International Women's Day marked the launch of the 2018 Women in Housing Awards, with a new date and location for this year.

The event, which is the largest in the sector dedicated to showcasing achievements and innovation, identifying role models and celebrating women, has been supported by WISH since its inception.

Following the acquisition of the awards by Inside Housing the event will be run in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) this year.

It was officially launched on International Women’s Day at WISH London’s annual drinks reception, which has become a firm fixture in the calendar for attendees at the CIH’s Total Housing conference and exhibition in Brighton.

“We are delighted to be supporting the Women in Housing Awards yet again this year and proud that Inside Housing chose our event at Brighton for the official launch,” said Nicola Dibb executive director and founder of WISH.

“While progress has been made in recent years, we are still a long way from achieving gender parity in housing and construction. Events such as the Women in Housing Awards are vital for shining a spotlight on the achievements of women who are blazing a trail in the sector.”

Nominations are now open for the 2018 event, which is free to enter, and it would be great to see some WISH members among the nominees.

You can enter online at and the deadline is 5pm on Friday 11 May.

Each category has been designed to recognise the achievements of individuals or projects that consistently demonstrate a commitment to excellence within their roles, their organisation and the wider sector and this year a new Woman of the Year category has been introduced to recognise a truly inspirational ambassador for women in housing.

The categories are:

  • Housing Professional of the Year
