WISH co-founder and executive director Nicola Dibb has featured in 24 Housing’s Top 50 Power Players list.
It is the first time that Nicola has appeared in the annual list of housing’s most influential people which is voted for by those within the sector.
24Housing asked voters to “think about not just who is powerful, but who uses their power to influence the sector and wider society for the better”.
Nicola has worked tirelessly to break down barriers within social housing and construction since she and Debra Constance founded WISH over 20 years ago.
She has been recognised for her years of commitment in fighting the gender equality cause and growing the WISH network, positioning it as a leading force for the sector.
Nicola said: “I am delighted that the work of WISH has been recognised in this prestigious list. We have come a long way in terms of gender equality since WISH was set up just over 20 years ago, but we still have some way to go before the playing field is truly level.
“WISH will continue to support women into the industry and help them to progress in their chosen career path and accolades such as this help to highlight our work and to raise our profile.”
