The ARES women’s caucus breakfast began as an informal networking opportunity among junior and senior level academics and professionals in the mid-2000s. In 2012, however, under the leadership of Sofia Dermisi and Jane Londerville, who had co-chaired the event for a couple of years, it was decided to create a better identify for the event with a new name. The new name was unveiled at the 2013 ARES’s annual meeting in Hawaii. From that point on, the ARES women’s caucus event became known as the Connecting-Women in Real Estate Research & Education [C-WI(RE)2] event and focused on “experience exchanges, networking opportunities, education, research and mentoring for women academics and professionals from a junior to a senior level around the globe.” The topic of the first C-WI(RE)2event was titled: “Women in Leadership Positions - Breaking Throughthe Glass Ceiling” and included a keynote speaker as well a global panel with both academics and practitioners. Although the co-chairs have changed, the event continues to grow and to attract new participants.
Join the Conversation
There are two ways that you can connect with us and join the conversation about women in real estate.
C‐Wi(RE)2 Breakfast and Caucus: Thursday, April 11th, 7am - 10am
How can C‐WI(RE)2 help you? Resources, opportunities, and events designed to promote the careers of women real estate.
To encourage peer networking among junior, mid-career, and senior female participants and to foster communication between junior and senior members of the profession, C‐Wi(RE)2 will organize a mentoring session following our annual breakfast. At this event, senior members (predominately senior women) are pre-assigned to one of a variety of topical tables to provide mentoring advice to early and mid-career women in areas such as research and publishing, tenure and promotion, non-academic careers, teaching, work-life balance, and the job market. Please join us for a productive networking and mentoring session!
