Sustainability advisor for ISG’s UK fit-out division, Nicola Forest, joins a panel of young professionals in the built environment for the RICS International Women’s Day #BreakTheBias event.
Taking the opportunity to champion women from across the built environment, The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) hosted a #BreakTheBias event for International Women’s Day.
Joining the panel to discuss ‘The next generation – countering the regressive impact of COVID-19 on young professionals and women in the workplace’ was sustainability advisor at ISG and RICS Matrics London chair, Nicola Forest.
“At work, I’m surrounded by a lot of inspirational women who are passionate about what they do, incredible in their roles and who are very successful. That’s what motivates me every day.”
- Nicola Forest, Sustainability Advisor, ISG
Focusing on the difficulties young people – and particularly young women – have faced as a result of the pandemic, the panel discussed a range of topics; from career progression and work-life balance to modern methods of construction and attracting a more diverse talent pool in the next generation of building professionals.

Mirona tomala, project manager, Gleeds
Bella Platts, project manager, Gleeds
