The Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) formally launched in Charlotte, NC at the ULI 2012 Spring Meeting. WLI was formed late in 2010 and is now an active part of ULI’s Larson Leadership Initiative which enables ULI to add leadership development activities to its program of work and extend the Institute’s reach to many more current and potential leaders.
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.
There are currently 4 National Councils around Asia Pacific with active WLI Activities, they are: Australia, Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore. If you would like to be involved with the WLI’s work, contact us at ULI_AsiaPac@uli.org for more details.
