The Women’s Integrated Network (WIN) awarded five of its members scholarships to participate in the 2018 Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) Network’s Leadership Certificate program. These scholarships are granted in honor of the late Shelley Radomski, former executive managing director, brokerage & capital markets, Americas, a strong advocate for female leadership.
This program features yearlong specialized leadership development, industry training and mentorship with expert instructors and networking opportunities. The scholarship recipients attended three sessions on leadership connection, leadership presence and leadership negotiations led by scholars from MIT and Harvard. Most recently, they attended their final session at the 2018 CREW Convention in San Diego.
