Women have historically been underrepresented in both Commercial Real Estate (CRE) and Construction, specifically when it comes to leadership within these industries. The latest CREW Benchmark Study determined that just 36.7% of all CRE positions are held by women, and the U.S. Department of Labor calculated that number as only 14.1% for women with roles in Construction. How do we break this trend? And perhaps more importantly, how do we inspire the next generation of female leaders to forge their paths to executive status, despite these statistics? Join Female Strong as we hear from a handful of leading women in Chicago’s Commercial Real Estate and Construction scene, including Suzet McKinney, Principal and Director for Sterling Bay's Life Sciences Division; Trish Gordon, Vice President of Program Management at JLL; Diana Pisone, Principal and Workplace Market Leader at Stantec; and Jamie Redmond, Partner, and Operations Executive at Redmond. The event will begin with a 45-minute panel featuring our incredible speakers who will share their insight and personal experiences. This will be followed by a “Lunch with a Leader.” Each table in the venue will feature one or more leaders in the industry (additional leaders to be announced soon!) who will continue to share advice while continuing the conversation around building a more equitable and accessible industry. 100% of the proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Female Strong. For the raffle items listed below, please note that you need not be present to win!
