Name: Sharon Crawford
Title: Studio Director
When did you join TCREW and in what ways have you been active (i.e. committees, chair positions, etc): I’ve been a member of TCREW since 2001 and have served on the sponsorship committee and Champions Awards eventually becoming nominations chair and Event Chair. I became a board member in 2015 and currently am serving as President for 2019.
How has your TCREW membership been impactful in your own personal growth and development? This network of local women and national leadership training opportunities have been invaluable in my career growth. I partner with many members on projects and I’ve grown great friendships over the years.
How do you see TCREW impacting the Triangle? I see women in many diverse careers in 2019, up from traditional roles and I see men in our industry supporting our organization and these local women. We have also increased our mentorship program and have had three national scholarship winners over the past two years from the Triangle area!
How can we, as women in the commercial real estate industry, best make an impact in mentoring the next generation of women in CRE? We must always give back and encourage at all levels, always promoting each other and connecting our membership.
