Who is WLI?
The Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) was established in 2011 as a global program of the Urban Land Institute. Today it has an active global Steering Committee in addition to 40 chapters in numerous countries around the world. The global WLI leaders support local programming and initiatives, helping to increase both the number and visibility of more women leaders throughout ULI’s vast network.
The Orange County/Inland Empire WLI Council formed in 2015 and currently has 31 members working to fulfill the objectives of the Women’s Leadership Initiative. The WLI Council brings experience from the public, private and non-profit sectors in finance, legal, design, planning, engineering, development, construction, marketing, and title. Together they are working to raise the visibility of Women in Real Estate by recognizing their excellence and acknowledging their accomplishments. This is a council of peers, mentors, and mentees supporting each other as they advance the WLI mission.
