Focusing on Strategies to Energize Women’s Careers in Commercial Real Estate
SEATTLE, May 10, 2017/BOMA Seattle King County/- On May 10th, BOMA Seattle King County held their first annual Women in Action Event highlighting Strategies to Energize Your Career. This event was kicked off by BOMA Chairman, Josh Keene of Washington Holdings, and featured a panel of successful women in the commercial real estate industry: Scotta Ashcraft, Senior Vice President at CBRE, Robin Layton, Owner of Robin Layton Photography, and Coleen Spratt, Director of Real Estate Management Services at Colliers International. Moderated by Allison Delong, Director of Property Management at Tishman Speyer, the panelists shared stories about their paths to success and how they balance work and life. The event took place at Hudson Pacific’s Class A lobby space at 505 1st Ave S with networking before the program. With over 150 people in attendance, it was a fun evening filled with laughs and inspiring stories that left those who attended energized.
BOMA’s “Women in Action” was created by a small committee who attended a special breakfast at BOMA International and wanted to bring that energy and comradery to Seattle. The goal was to bring members, men and women alike, to a place where they can harness the changes and challenges women face in commercial real estate. Ultimately, many shared challenges, exchanged success stories and offered an important segment of growth for women in this rapidly growing industry.
