International Women's Day: Celebrating Women Who Build Our Communities

Happy International Women's Day! Today, we celebrate the incredible achievements of women across all walks of life, and the real estate industry is no exception. From visionary architects who design the spaces we live in to the dedicated agents who guide us towards our dream homes, women have always been a powerful force in building our communities.

Building Dreams and Closing the Gap: Women in Ethiopian Real Estate

While the number of women entering the real estate field globally is on the rise, here in Ethiopia, there's a unique opportunity to empower a significant segment of the population. With an estimated population of 127 million, over 61.7% are women. However, less than a quarter of Ethiopian households have women listed as homeowners. At Citylink Realtors, we see this as a chance to bridge the gap and unlock the immense potential of women in the Ethiopian real estate market.

Women play a crucial role in shaping our communities, and the real estate industry is no exception. Their presence is essential for a thriving housing market in Ethiopia.

Paving the Way: Pioneering Women in Real Estate and Architecture

While the real estate and architecture industries have traditionally been male-dominated, many women have defied these limitations and made significant contributions throughout history. Let's take a moment to acknowledge such trailblazers:

Harriet Beautill (1844-1925): Considered the first woman admitted to the American Institute of Architects (AIA) in 1888, Harriet Beautill challenged gender norms and paved the way for future generations of female architects. Her work focused on residential design, and she was known for her innovative and functional floor plans.

Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk (born 1950): A contemporary architect and urban designer, Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk is a leading figure in sustainable design. Her firm, Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk Architects (EPLZA), focuses on creating walkable, environmentally friendly communities. She is a strong advocate for incorporating green spaces and mixed-use development into urban planning.

Rahel Shawl (present): Closer to home, Ethiopian architect Rahel Shawl is an inspiration for women in East Africa. Founder and Principal of RAAS Architects in Addis Ababa, Rahel blends her industry know-how with a passion for people and identity. Her design philosophy emphasizes positive social impact, and her firm has been involved in a wide range of projects, including residential, institutional, and educational buildings. Rahel is a recipient of numerous accolades, including the Aga Khan Award for Architecture and the Association of Ethiopian Architects (AEA) Best Architecture Piece Award.

These are just a few examples of the many remarkable women who have shaped the built environment. Their achievements inspire us and demonstrate the long history of women's involvement in real estate and architecture.While these are inspiring it's important to acknowledge the many talented women who are shaping the future of real estate and architecture around the world. In Ethiopia, for instance, there are a growing number of women entering the field of design, contributing their unique perspectives to the built environment.

Looking Forward: A Brighter Future for Women in Real Estate

Organizations like the Women in Real Estate (WIRE) Network are creating incredible opportunities for women to thrive in this industry. These initiatives offer mentorship programs, scholarships, and networking events that help women connect and build successful careers.

At Citylink Realtors, we are optimistic about the future of women in real estate. We believe that the industry will continue to benefit from the talent, dedication, and unique perspectives that women bring to the table.
