The Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) was established in 2011 as a program of the Urban Land Institute. The WLI supports local events and professional development opportunities, helping to increase both the number and visibility of more women leaders throughout ULI’s vast network.
The mission of the WLI is expressed in its four primary objectives:
- Promote the advancement of women, throughout their careers, as leaders in the real estate industry.
- Increase the number of women who serve in leadership positions in the real estate industry and in ULI.
- Increase the visibility of women leaders in the real estate industry and in ULI.
- Increase the number of women who are active ULI Full members, and support the development of young women members as leaders in ULI and in their professions.
