100 for 100 series: Leanne Chatt

2018 is a milestone year as it marks 100 years since women in the UK were given the right to vote as part of the Representation of the People’s Act.

At Wates we want to use this historic anniversary as a catalyst for promoting equality of opportunity for women across our industry. Throughout 2018 we are running a campaign called #100for100, where we will feature 100 women from across the business at all levels – providing a window into the daily working lives of our female colleagues and a platform for their views.

Our latest entrant is below, plus you can see all current featured employees here

What brought you to Wates?

What advice would you give to women entering the industry?
Be yourself and don’t be afraid to have a voice. You shouldn’t feel the need to try harder because you’re a woman, all of your efforts should be to support your own ambitions.
