As the Senior Development Manager for Bowden Development, Jacqueline (Jackie) de Meyrick navigates the intricate landscape of urban development incorporating sustainable solutions and providing a smarter way of living. On International Women's Day, Jackie's journey serves as a testament to the transformative power of investing in women to accelerate progress.

"It's a day to reflect on the opportunities we have today because of the trailblazers who came before us," she said. "It's a reminder to pay it forward for the next generation of women."

Jackie asserts investing in women is paramount for driving innovation and fostering diverse perspectives in decision-making processes. "Investing in women provides diversity in decision-making," she explained. "It allows us to challenge norms and pioneer innovative solutions, ultimately leading to better outcomes for communities."

As part of the Renewal SA team, Jackie is committed to creating greater visibility and recognition for women within the property industry. "We can provide work-life balance and flexible arrangements for the modern family, regardless of gender," she said. "We must offer leadership development opportunities for women to thrive."

Jackie's own journey exemplifies the power of investment in women. "Past companies have invested in me through postgraduate studies," she shared. "These opportunities allowed me to expand my skill set and take on stretch assignments."

One such milestone was her launch of a development from scratch before the age of 30 as an Assistant Development Manager—a testament to her potential for higher roles and future promotions.

Looking ahead, Jackie envisions a future where gender is not a barrier to success. "I envisage a future whereby people are judged for their abilities, contribution, and character regardless of gender," she envisions. "Where everyone has equal opportunities, rights, and representation."

Through her dedication and leadership, Jackie continues to accelerate progress, leaving an indelible mark on the landscape of property development and inspiring generations to come.
