Viewpoints: Women Leading the Future

Date May 1, 2019
Location Norton Rose Fulbright
Time 3 - 6:30 PM (BST)

A CREW UK continuing professional development event

Join leading experts for an informative event discussing women in leadership and the commercial real estate industry. Diversity continues to be a key issue for the industry and keynote speaker Dr Claire Collins will address a range of issues and trends relating to women in leadership, including:

  • Unconscious bias and how to embed real organisational culture change
  • Mentors versus sponsors - what role do each play and why they are both important
  • Overcoming the leaky pipeline - there are equal men and women entering the workforce so where do the women go and what can we do about it?

This will then be followed by an expert panel from the commercial real estate sector who will draw on their experience, identifying good practice and strategies that they have found can make a real impact. Attendees are encouraged to join the debate and share their own experiences.

We will also be joined by CREW Network Global Study Mission participants from the U.S. who will add an additional perspective to the discussion.

Online registration is closed. If you are interested in attending, please email Laura Lewis.
