Being accepted into the Leadership Academy has truly helped my professional development and given me the confidence to step forward into the next stage of my career. - Molly Pidgeon, Pidgeon & Company

Pidgeon & Company is a woman-owned; woman-led construction management firm. As a business owner most of my leadership skills and business acumen have been developed through the experience of trial and error.  CREW Boston's Leadership Academy touched on many aspects of executive-level training that helped to affirm actions I have already taken and allowed me the awareness of needed areas of change and growth. Engaging with other women at similar points in their careers and the sharing of experiences ultimately helped us bond as a group.

CREW has not only provided me with an incredible network of female leaders in our industry but has also provided me with access to a wide variety of programs, tours, and networking opportunities that have unequivocally allowed me to grow personally and professionally. - Rachael Diharce, IRD Advisors

I have been fortunate enough to be on the programs committee in two different states totaling just over 5 years and enjoyed every minute of it!  My fellow committee members always impress me with their passion for providing great programs to the chapter and finding new ways to continue to expand the organization. I couldn’t be more excited to step into my role on the board this year and work with an incredible group of women who are all leaders in their perspective fields as we continue to challenge and support one another in our combined mission in advancing women forward, companies forward, and business deals forward.

    Coffee with CREW - Leveraging CREW Network

    Proving that Friday the 13th doesn’t have to be unlucky, CREW Boston’s CREW Network Committee hosted an engagingCoffee with CREW with special guests Holly Neber of AEI and Dianne Crocker of LightBox on November 13th.  Leveraging CREW Network has been invaluable to both Holly and Dianne on their career paths, providing them with connections well outside of their chapters, opportunities to hone their leadership skills and the courage to embrace new challenges.
      
    As an active member of East Bay CREW and Immediate Past President of CREW Network and CREW Network Board of Directors, Holly spoke to the value of joining CREW Network Committees (e.g., Audit and Finance, Communications/ Editorial, Industry Research, Nominating, Member Education, Recognition, Scholarship Selection, and Diversity Equity and Inclusion Task Force), assuming leadership positions within the Network, as well as registering to participate in the next Leadership Summit in February 2021 (virtual event). Dianne, an active CREW Boston member and a past member of the CREW Network Member Education Committee, stressed the value of having a strong CREWBiz Profile, leveraging the incredible power of CREW Network for reaching experts on a particular topic of interest, accessing the CREWBiz community to give and get business (https://crewbiz.crewnetwork.org/), and being proactive about engaging with members across the Network in virtually every niche of commercial real estate

    ​Where There's Chaos - There's Opportunity!

    Members of the Entrepreneur Exchange Group aren’t strangers to chaos: many of us started our companies during layoffs or recessions. But what do we do in the face of global pandemic? Keeping teams engaged and accountable seems to be the biggest challenge of the COVID era. Several members are having all-staff meetings every day but Friday to keep everyone connected, adding weekly Project team meetings with their clients for a 15-minute check-in. Many have expanded their use of technology, starting, or joining podcasts, and upping their social media games. Make sure you’re following your fellow CREW members on LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, and your favorite podcast service! Let’s not forget the self-care aspect of the “new normal.” With increased screen time and the lack of social interaction, many have found that scheduling a mental health break in the middle of the day for a walk, yoga, pilates, or simply lunch away from their desks refreshes them for the rest of the day.
