CREW Atlanta July 2022 Letter to Membership

July 17, 2022
Dear CREW Atlanta Members,

We did it! We have met the CREW Foundation Trifecta Challenge! Thank you to all who contributed to the CREW Network Foundation to support the advancement of women in the commercial real estate industry. Currently, 54% of our membership has donated to the Foundation. If you are among the 46% who have not yet donated, your gift still matters. The challenge is a fun way to increase participation, but the real goal is to fund the scholarships, research and outreach that support women in commercial real estate. Please make your gift here – no amount is too small.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are at the heart of the CREW Atlanta mission, and at our July 21 Continuing Education Seminar at Corporate Environments, we are providing an opportunity to earn DEI certification and three continuing education credit hours in a hybrid workshop covering inequality in the real estate industry led by Joy Stephens, MBS Board Certified Coach and Diversity and Inclusion Consultant. Join us for lunch and an important conversation on how to make our industry more equitable and inclusive to all.

I am so excited about our Empowerment Speaker Series on September 8 at Cobb Performing Arts Center! Wall Street Journal bestselling author, workplace loneliness expert, and world-renowned future-of-work speaker Ryan Jenkins will speak about the impact of loneliness on overall business success, employee retention and productivity. Ryan will share his trademarked approach to combatting loneliness to help your teams be more connected, driven and high performing. This is always a popular event, so register now.

The 2022 CREW Network Convention is taking place September 21-23 in Chicago, Illinois, and we are expecting a big Atlanta crowd! CREW Network Convention provides amazing professional development, networking and business-building opportunities, and is a fantastic way to build your international network as well as spend quality time with fellow CREW Atlanta members. Register now, while space is still available!

Happy Anniversary CREW Atlanta!

Ellen W. Smith
