We’re Looking for More of Commercial Real Estate’s Most Influential Women 

Nominations for Connect CRE’s 2022 Women in Real Estate Awards have been open since the beginning of this month, and while industry response to date has been heartening, we know there are many worthy candidates who haven’t been nominated yet. We’re continuing to call for nominations to spotlight women whose talent, drive and leadership have helped them succeed and become influential in commercial real estate.  

We intend to recognize women from each of the 11 regions we cover with daily news. From coast to coast, that means honorees from California; Seattle and the Pacific Northwest; Phoenix and the Southwest; Texas; Chicago and the Midwest; Boston and New England; New York and Tri-State; Washington, DC; Atlanta and the Southeast; and Florida and the Gulf Coast, in addition to National honorees.  

Along with nominees from across the country, we’re also looking across the CRE spectrum. Last year’s winners included women in development, finance, brokerage, investment sales and real estate law, to name a few of the disciplines that were represented.  

After considering your recommendations, we’ll choose this year’s honorees. We’ll begin announcing them in October.  

Please return your nomination(s) by August 26.
