RETS Associates recently surveyed nearly 300 women in commercial real estate about their careers—and the results are in.
“With their unique talents, determination, and ability to innovate, women are slowly but surely reshaping commercial real estate,” says Jana Turner, principal at RETS Associates. “Each time our firm has conducted this survey, we have been inspired to learn how women are leveling the playing field and paving the way for future generations of female CRE leaders.”
While commercial real estate continues to have a male-dominated population, and lack of equal pay and promotion opportunities remain the biggest challenges facing women in the industry today, the sector is slowly but surely evolving. This is according to RETS’ recent survey of women working in commercial real estate. In comparing this year’s results to those of a similar survey we conducted in 2018, we discovered that even though progress has been slow, the outlook for women is brighter than it was four years ago. Read on for the latest information from women in CRE on compensation, growth opportunities, work culture, work/life balance, sexual harassment, and more.
