Harsh Message in Top 100
The Women's Executive Network released its Top 100 list of Canada's most powerful women, and we noticed something shocking. The list covers the private, public, and not-for-profit sectors, but no one from the commercial real industry made the cut. "No, you did not miss a name," WXN founder Pamela Jeffery tells us. "At WXN, we do believe that there is much to be done by the commercial real estate industry to recruit and retain high performers who are women." The industry would be well served to do a better job at increasing the number of female real estate brokers, particularly in light of the growing number of female entrepreneurs and women in executive roles, she says.
