The Toronto chapter of the Urban Land Institute (ULI)’s Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) was created in 2014 to help advance women in real estate, and the Championship Team was started at that time with the first 80 members.
The WLI Championship Team profiles women real estate experts and leaders and recognizes the talent that they bring to the region. Each year, some of the most influential women in the Toronto real estate community and land use sector are chosen as Champions and are formally inducted at the annual WLI reception. Last year, 23 women were selected based on their contributions to the Toronto real estate and land use sector.
The ULI’s WLI is currently accepting nominations for the 2017 Championship Team. Successful members will be chosen based on having a minimum of 10 years in the industry; exceptional leadership and skills in the real estate development and land use disciplines; dedication to, and success at, building thriving communities across the Toronto region; the capacity to inspire others in the industry; and commitment to their community as demonstrated through leadership in community organizations.
Current ULI and WLI members are encouraged to nominate a woman for the 2017 Championship Team. Each member may nominate one woman for consideration.
To be considered for the 2017 WLI Championship Team, fill out a nomination form and include a brief bio. Email the completed form to Alexandra Rybak at email@example.com. Nominations are due by March 31, 2017.
The 2017 Championship Team will be announced at the WLI June event.
