Tickets, Sponsorships Available for The Goldie Gala 2023

Tickets and sponsorships are available for The Goldie Initiative’s 7th annual Goldie Gala, which will take place on Thursday, September 21, at Wintrust’s Grand Banking Hall in Chicago.

The special evening will feature “power networking” and live entertainment, all in support of women in the CRE Industry. In addition to honoring this year’s Shero award recipient, The Goldie Initiative will introduce its 2023-24 Goldie Scholars cohort.

This year’s Shero is Mary Ludgin, Head of Global Investment Research at Heitman. Mary oversees Heitman’s work in ESG and has served as editor of the series on Climate Risk that Heitman authored in collaboration with the Urban Land Institute.

The mission of The Goldie Initiative is to prepare women for senior leadership roles in all sectors of commercial real estate. The Goldie Initiative provides scholarship support for graduate study, mentorship, and networking opportunities to women who are committed to becoming leaders in the real estate industry.
