CREW Network Releases Latest Industry Research White Paper
CREW Network is proud to be the leading producer of research on women in the industry, and we are excited to share our latest white paper, Diversity: The Business Advantage – Best Practices for Gender Equity and Inclusion in Commercial Real Estate.

After reviewing hundreds of testimonials and conducting extensive research, the 2017 CREW Network Industry Research Committee selected 10 companies from Canada, the U.K. and U.S. to profile for case studies. The case studies outline the companies’ representation of women employees, top executives, and board members, as well as notable employee programs, networking and interest groups, mentoring and sponsorship programs, and flexible work arrangements.

Each of the companies have benefitted from improvements in gender equity and more diverse workforces. Many have seen increases in profits and stock performance. Others have been more successful in recruiting and retaining women. All have experienced gains from the greater creativity, critical thinking and innovation that comes from diverse teams.

In the white paper, we also outline the gender gap in commercial real estate, the business case for diversity, and tips and action items for employers, women, leaders—and anyone—to improve gender equity and inclusion.
