Reading student "Highly Commended" at the Women in Property National Student Awards for the South East

Mollie Horton at the Women in Property Awards for the South EastCongratulations to Mollie Horton, a final year BSc (Hons) Building Surveying student, who came 4th and was Highly Commended at the recent Women in Property (WIP) National Student Awards for the South East.

After a rigorous assessment that included interviews, presentations and written submissions, the Awards concluded with a dinner on the 7th June at the London offices of Wedlake Bell LLP, allowing the nominees the opportunity to network with prominent industry members including representatives from the Awards sponsors Bouygues, Cushman & Wakefield, and Linden Homes. Following her achievement Mollie has agreed to mentor any future nominees and share her experience with other students.

Mollie said, "I was delighted to have been nominated to represent the School and University at the Awards and over the moon to have been awarded with Highly Commended, which hopefully will provide me with more work experience opportunities. The Awards were a great opportunity to network with other industry professionals and it was lovely to see other women being praised for their great work - more of which should happen within the property industry. I'm excited to see how next year's nominees perform and can't wait to assist them throughout the process."

In recognition for her outstanding attitude and exemplary academic achievements, Mollie was nominated to represent the School of Construction Management and Engineering. As part of the Award process Mollie, along with 26 competitors, had to submit her CV and give a presentation on a recent piece of coursework to a panel of judges drawn from the property industry. After the presentation Mollie was interviewed on her experience in the industry and her views on the built environment, in particular women in property and equality, before going through to the finals with 19 other students from a range of respected universities including Portsmouth, Surrey, UCL and Imperial.

Dr Emmanuel A Essah, the Undergraduate Director of Programmes in the School, said, "I couldn't be prouder of Mollie's achievement. Mollie's will to win, her desire to succeed and the urge for her to continue to reach her full potential was the key that unlocked the door to achieving this personal accolade. Her achievement is exemplary for all the female students that would like to follow in her footsteps. Together with the Head of School for the Built Environment, the Head of Construction Management and Engineering and staff members, we are extremely proud of Mollie for receiving this prestigious Women in Property (WIP) award."
