Author: Natalie Dolce and Real Estate Forum are pleased to announce the top 2019 Woman of Influence professionals of the year in the category of architect and design professional.

In preparation for our Women of Influence special feature and retreat, Real Estate Forum and together is putting a spotlight on the achievements of women in commercial real estate. This year, we collected nominations across a number of fields, with the awards to be presented at our inaugural GlobeSt.ELITE Women of Influence Conference and this year’s amount of entries, was our biggest yet.

The field of architect and design professional was open to architects and interior designers who work on income-producing commercial and residential real estate projects. No stranger to the term place making, these people ideally are behind the planning, design and oversight of some of the most innovative and remarkable properties in the country today. Their creativity, ingenuity and commitment to maximizing results, and her work serves as an illustration of how design and construction can improve profits and communities.

Since 1983, Forum’s Women of Influence has recognized remarkable commercial real estate professionals who have significantly influenced the market or had outstanding successes in the past year. It is in that spirit that we’re launching our first-ever Women of Influence Conference will celebrate the women who drive the commercial real estate industry forward.

At this year’s event, we will honor the winners at the event July 10-11th in Broomfield, CO, at a special awards ceremony cocktail reception and gala dinner. The inaugural GlobeSt.ELITE Women of Influence Conference celebrates the women who drive the commercial real estate industry forward. In panel discussions throughout the event, these influential leaders will discuss the critical issues facing CRE now and in the future, what it means to be a woman in business today and CRE’s place in the #MeToo era. They will discuss what they are doing to promote diversity in the upper levels of management and what the industry can do to position itself for a more inclusive future.
