  • An Honoring of our 2018 Power Women

  • Coffee & Extended Networking!

South Florida Power Women 2018

Bisnow's Power Women initiative honors those top-level executives and industry leaders who shape commercial real estate.

Our South Florida Power Women event will bring together the industry's most powerful and influential women to honor them and address some of the biggest issues facing women in the industry today:

1) How has the #MeToo movement begun to reshape the industry? Have you noticed it in your own workplaces?

2) What do you see changing in the culture of the CRE industry over the next 5 years?

3) What are the industry's most powerful and influential women doing to promote equality in the workforce?

4) Where do you think South Florida stands in comparison to other parts of the country in terms of promoting women in CRE?

5) What are SFL's CRE firms doing to drive change and build the pipeline for aspiring female leaders?

 

You won't want to miss your friends and colleagues as they are honored and our all-star lineup answer these questions and more. Don't forget your biz cards!  

Do you know, or work with, a Power Woman? We'd love to hear about them! Please send your nominations to Adriano Salucci at adriano.salucci@bisnow.com!
