Panelist, CREW-Miami: Monthly Luncheon Meeting: Closing the Gender Gap

Recent studies from CREW Network and The Florida Bar show that women are still facing gender bias and a wide wage gap. CREW Network’s Benchmark Study indicates that while career satisfaction and optimism among women in commercial real estate are improving, a 23.3% median wage gap between men and women remains. The Florida Bar’s Young Lawyers Division recently found that 43% percent of young female lawyers still faced gender bias and harassment in the workplace.

While these results are sobering, they also expose opportunities for narrowing the gender gap in traditionally male-dominated industries such as commercial real estate and law. Join us as we sponsor CREW-Miami’s August luncheon and panel program that will bring together male and female business leaders in both law and commercial real estate to address these challenges and identify solutions together.

The luncheon and panel will be hosted at the Four Seasons Brickell on Wednesday, August 17th from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm. Panelists include President of The Florida Bar Bill Schifino Jr., JLL Managing Partner Barbara Liberatore Black, GrayRobinson, PA Incoming President and Managing Director Mayanne Downs, CREC President Carol Brooks and Bilzin Sumberger Partner Al Dotson.  Moderated by former television news anchor and reporter Cynthia Demos.
