If you’d compare a CoreNet Global Summit from 15 years ago  to one today you’d notice some obvious differences: iPhones have replaced Blackberries, no one physically connects to the Internet anymore, and virtual reality really is a thing!

And another and more important: women are representing corporate real estate (CRE) and CoreNet Global in growing numbers and significance.

This month’s LEADER magazine takes a look at how the women of CoreNet Global are succeeding, despite it still being very much a profession that is mostly male.

One common theme that many women cite as a force that has helped them has been mentorship.

“There have been times when I have faced challenges and my greatest learning has been to get a coach or mentor that can really hold the mirror up and ask the difficult questions,” said Jane Muir-Sands, the London-based vice president of Workplace and Travel Services for Unilever. “A great coach or mentor can really help you navigate the more difficult situations and issues that can arise.”

Take a look at this month’s issue for inspiring stories of more women in corporate real estate. And CoreNet Global offers a Mentor Match program for anyone interested and serving as a mentor or mentee. Learn more about that program here.
