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 was kicked off June 4, 2014 with a visit from Diana Reid, current Chair of the ULI Women’s Leadership Initiative, Trustee of the Urban Land Institute, and member of the ULI Board of Directors.

3rd Annual Women’s Leadership Series

This program provides educational learning, professional development, leadership training, business skills, and empowerment to local women in the traditionally male-dominated field of commercial real estate. The program is specifically designed for a small group of women in pivotal stages of their careers across various disciplines within the real estate industry.

Denise has twice been honored as one of the most influential women in Kansas City and has devoted her career to promoting and growing leaders. She will guide you through the workshops to unlock your potential, arm you with the tools to be more effective, and improve your professional relationships.
