We send this issue to press with much pride and a little trepidation. On the following pages you will read stories of hundreds of women who have made their mark in commercial real estate through many praise-worthy accomplishments. Getting on this list was not easy, in no small part because there were so many quality applicants to consider. But here they are despite the fact that the industry has long been seen as one primarily dominated by men.

Ideally, the path forward would be more of the same for these and other women who strive for achievement in our space: hard work and recognition when it is due. But that path has clouded somewhat in the wake of the recent Supreme Court decision ending affirmative action in higher education – a decision that is expected to reverberate in corporate corridors. We remain hopeful, though, that women will continue, through their grit and determination, to reach the upper echelons of commercial real estate firms and be recognized for their achievements.
