In 2016, CREW Network published a white paper on Closing the Gap: Addressing Gender Bias and Other Barriers for Women in Commercial Real Estate using findings from the 2015 CREW Network Benchmark Study which measured progress for women in commercial real estate. The study polled 1,019 industry professionals – both male and female – on topics that included gender bias, compensation practices, mentoring and sponsoring, ageism and the aspiration gap. Findings from the study indicated positive progress for women in the industry but also uncovered gender gaps, disparities, and potential bias.

This presentation will deepen your understanding of unconscious biases, how they influence behavior, and how they impact women. You'll also learn four steps women can take to help counter bias. This interactive and dynamic session begins with a brief introduction to unconscious bias and participants will then share moments that matter through discussion and learn to hold themselves and others accountable with an intentionality on inclusion and belonging at the table.
