The commercial real estate industry provides one of the greatest, yet often overlooked, career opportunities for women. From brokerage to law, finance, development, architecture and more, women are excelling in exciting and lucrative careers.  Since 2007 CREW Network has supported student outreach through CREW Careers and UCREW.  Our goal is to introduce high school and college students to the many diverse opportunities in commercial real estate.
