Women in Leadership in the Real Estate and Land Use Industry

The ULI Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) has examined the current state of women in the real estate and land use field and identifies the most important actions organizations can take to promote more women to positions of greater seniority and visibility.

Assessment of Approaches to Advance Women

To assess how organizations can advance more women into leadership roles, WLI developed and tested a model that distinguishes among the different approaches organizations can take.

Survey Results of Women in the Industry

WLI surveyed ULI’s female members to understand the level of leadership they have achieved and what approaches have helped them succeed.

Recommended Actions for Organizations

Organizations succeed in advancing more women when they combine approaches that change how daily work is done and alter the supporting structure.
