Nominations Open For Chicago Women Leaders Setting The Bar In CRE

Women are leading commercial real estate — setting strategy, making big deals, plotting investments and charting the course in dozens of different ways — and Bisnow wants to hear all about them.

This year’s Women Leading Real Estate event will celebrate the game-changers and deal-makers in Windy City CRE, bringing together some of the industry's most inspiring, groundbreaking and effective female leaders at a March 30 event.

Now we need your help to select our honorees.

CIBC US’ Karen Case; Millbrook Properties’ Jen Sweeney, Luxury Living Chicago’s Amy Galvin and Pine Tree’s Shelley Xu at Bisnow's February 2022 Chicago Power Women event.

This year's nominees should fall into one or multiple of the following categories:

 — Leader of the Year: A woman who has shown leadership and continued efforts to move the market forward throughout 2022 and previous years.

 — Innovator of the Year: A woman who has excelled in driving change in the commercial real estate field and used new or creative ideas to improve the industry.

 — Deal-maker of the Year: A woman who has made a significant contribution to one or more major deals in the Chicago market.

 — Rising Star: A woman who has been in the industry less than 10 years and has made a significant impact on the market and/or has largely contributed to a major commercial real estate project.

 — Unsung Hero: A woman who is behind the scenes in CRE but makes a huge impact and is vital to helping the industry move forward.

Bisnow has enlisted a steering committee to help determine this year's cohort of honorees. Its members are Tammy Kelly, EQT Exeter managing director and head of U.S. Multifamily Asset Management; Collete English Dixon, executive director of the Marshall Bennett Institute of Real Estate at Roosevelt University; Ginna Ryan, Mauge principal and chief operating officer; and Alissa Adler, Colliers senior vice president.

This year’s class of Chicago Women Leading Real Estate will share their journeys and discuss strategies in recruitment for the advancement of women within the industry at the March event, which will also offer attendees insight, networking and resources for professional development.

Please fill out the form below to nominate a woman you think deserves to be recognized. Nominations will be open until Feb. 6.
