CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® WomanUP!® Conference opens next week

LOS ANGELES (June 20) – In an effort to inspire women to step into real estate brokerage leadership, the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.) will present its second WomanUP!® Conference to be held June 28-29 at the JW Marriott LA Live in Los Angeles.

The two-day conference is part of C.A.R.’s women’s outreach program to bring together a community of mentors and leaders to communicate, collaborate, and support one another in the real estate industry.

“While the real estate industry is predominantly female, women are underrepresented in leadership positions both at the brokerage and senior management levels,” said C.A.R. President Steve White. “That’s why it’s important to increase awareness about women’s leadership opportunities in the brokerage industry and inspire women to step into brokerage leadership.”

“WomanUP!® is a place for attendees to hear best practices, lessons learned, and collective wisdom from experienced brokerage owners and receive support from a community of leaders and peers on their brokerage leadership journey,” said White.

According to C.A.R. data, 60 percent of REALTORS® in California are women, but only about one-third of leadership positions in brokerage firms with more than 100 agents are led by women – a statistic that has been virtually unchanged in recent years.

C.A.R. held its inaugural WomanUP!® Conference in Pasadena, Calif. last year. More than 300 women and men attended the full day of professional development devoted to giving powerful women bold tools to take their career to the next level.

Inman News nominated C.A.R. with their Inman Innovator Award recently, saying, “C.A.R. has committed to help elevate women in the industry through its WomanUP!® initiative. It’s hosted WomanUP!® events and promoted the initiative cleverly with social media.”

What’s the data behind the WomanUP!® movement? Read C.A.R.’s white paper, “C.A.R.’s Women’s Initiative: How Women Brokers Are Reinventing Leadership in the 21st Century.”
