Where Are The Women Leaders?
The Women's Executive Network released its list of Top 100 list of Canada's most powerful women yesterday, 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 says. "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.
