Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI)
The mission of the Urban Land Institute’s Women’s Leadership Initiative is to raise the visibility and number of female leaders within ULI and the real estate industry as a whole. WLI regularly hosts events and opportunities for high-level conversations with accomplished female leaders in the industry. The Kansas City ULI Chapter Women’s Leadership Initiative kicked off June 4, 2014, with a visit from Diana Reid, who was Chair of the ULI Women’s Leadership Initiative, Trustee of the Urban Land Institute, and a member of the ULI Board of Directors.
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
We are always looking for fresh perspectives and encourage our members to get involved in WLI by contributing program ideas, volunteering to help plan or support an event, or writing a social media post or event recap. We welcome your input!
