Bisnow’s Southern California Women Leading Real Estate Event: 5 Reasons To Attend


The commercial real estate industry has taken steps toward diversifying its ranks, but it still has work to do. While the number of women in CRE is on the rise, they still represent only 26.2% of C-suite positions, and salary gaps remain. This is why it is more important than ever to highlight the women impacting the industry and striving to make it better for the next generation of CRE leaders. 

Bisnow’s Women Leading Real Estate initiative shines a light on women making the biggest impact in CRE. At Southern California's Annual Women Leading Real Estate Awards Ceremony, held at Hilton Los Angeles Culver City on Dec. 5, we will be honoring the most innovative and influential leaders across all sectors of the commercial real estate industry. Register here for the event
