Meet the Chief Planners 2021
On April 30th, ULI hosted its 7th annual regional program for the professional land use community, Meet the Chief Planners.
The Toronto chapter of WLI was created in 2014 with a mandate to advance women in real estate and the Championship Team was born with the first 80 members.
The WLI Championship Team profiles female-identified real estate experts and leaders and recognizes the talent that exists in our city region. Each year a subset of the most influential female-identified leaders in the Toronto real estate community and land use sector will be chosen as Champions and formally inducted at the annual WLI reception.
Championship Team members are selected by a panel of their peers based on a record of exceptional leadership in the real estate development and land use disciplines; dedication to, and success at, building thriving communities across the Toronto region; and capacity to inspire others in the industry.
Please join us in congratulating the 2021 Championship Team inductees!
