The Women’s Leadership Initiative (the “WLI”) was delighted to formally launch in Charlotte at the ULI 2012 Spring Meeting. The WLI was formed late in 2010 and is now an active part of ULI’s Larson Leadership Initiative.
The mission of the WLI is expressed in its four primary objectives:
- Promote the advancement of women, throughout their careers, as leaders in the real estate industry.
- Increase the number of women who serve in leadership positions in the real estate industry and in ULI.
- Increase the visibility of women leaders in the real estate industry and in ULI.
- Increase the number of women who are active ULI Full members, and support the development of young women members as leaders in ULI and in their professions.
To date, the WLI has provided programming for the Spring and Fall meetings, sponsored networking events and helped women navigate within ULI.
