An exclusive mentorship programme for
women in commercial real estate

Connect with senior executives
Expand your business network
Advance your career

Mentoring is a cornerstone for advancement in any industry. It is especially valuable in commercial real estate, which relies heavily on business networking and leveraging relationships for connections. The knowledge exchanged enables mentors and mentees to build upon the shared experiences of others and advance their careers.

According to the CREW Network’s latest industry research paper, A Catalyst for Change: COVID-19’s Impact on Women in Commercial Real Estate, 38% believe the pandemic stalled progress for women and a further 32% believe it derailed progress for women or set them back. In addition, 52% of women said their career priorities have changed, and 90% of women said their personal priorities have changed.  Per CREW's research, limited access to decision makers and a lack of company mentor / sponsor are ranked in the top five barriers to success.

Our Mentorship programme connects mentees with industry leaders and innovators to help support their professional and personal development.  The programme is flexible, supportive and impactful.  Mentees can choose their mentors, connect with and learn from them, and build their network on their terms.

CREW UK has been running mentoring programmes since June 2020, and to date has offered over 1,400+ hours of mentorship and connecting 150+ mentees with 75+ mentors.  Countless relationships have been built providing real estate professionals with a platform to progress their careers.

Our previous Launch 4.0, provided 170+ hours of mentoring offered by 27 industry leaders and innovators. Read about our mentees experiences:

"Every conversation I’ve had has been extremely insightful and I have received useful advice which I know will help me progress in my career. It has been really helpful to hear about my mentor’s own personal experiences, gaining a new perspective and learning about new ways in which to further both my career and personal development.” 
-    Lauren Raw, Chartered Surveyor, Family Office Real Estate Investment at Deloitte

Not only did the mentorship program help me get a new job within the industry but has also helped me grow my own confidence in my career and find so many like-minded, motivated, and ambitious women to have as part of a network. I always feel very supported and inspired after each mentor session! 
-    Jade Grantham, Associate Director, Collier

“The most important aspect of CREW mentoring for me has been the ability to seek guidance from inspirational female leaders who have navigated (and continue to navigate!) the minefield of balancing their ambitious career goals with family life. There is a stark absence of female leaders, particularly in CRE investment roles – CREW connected me with women who I hope to emulate in the future.”
-    Katie Robertson, Revcap

Every mentor I’ve met with has shared sound advice on key areas from work-life balance to business development skills, which has been really helpful in enabling me to progress in my career.”
-    Riah Patel, CBRE
