There’s no question that there is a demand for increased numbers of surveyors in the workforce. More than that though, the numbers of women in surveying needs improvement.
The number of female surveyors in Australia is on the rise, however. In order to rectify the imbalance, education institutions and firms across the country offer scholarships to encourage women to enter the profession. Increasingly, there are more opportunities arising for women in the surveying profession. In New South Wales, a woman – Narelle Underwood – currently occupies the position of surveyor-general for the first time in state history. You can find out more about her here.
The scale is slowly tipping – but there is still a long way to go.
