Our Mission Pillars
Facilitating business networking and dealmaking is the cornerstone of our organization. We provide valuable networking opportunities locally through our chapter and globally through CREW Network. Members also have exclusive access to CREWbiz, a digital membership directory, resource and referral center, and personal marketing tool.
Building effective leaders is key to advancing the commercial real estate industry. We dedicate significant resources to providing our members with high-level leadership development training and opportunities to serve on boards and committees to develop and hone applicable leadership skills.
Working alongside CREW Network and CREW Network Foundation, we are committed to bringing more women into commercial real estate. We host programs that educate women and girls about the career opportunities available to them, support college-level education through scholarships, and offer mentorships to those new to the industry.
CREW Network is the world’s leading producer of research on gender and diversity in commercial real estate. Our research program produces industry reports quarterly, research papers annually, and a benchmark study every five years, delivering data and action items to advance women and positively impact the industry.
