    The Last FrontierIt is clear that while the real estate industry is still one that is male-dominated, particularly in the areas of construction, architecture and engineering, strides are being made, and successes are being parlayed, into an increasing number of programs to promote women into higher positions.

    Just consider Hunter Roberts Construction Group, Langan Engineering, and Lendlease, three major firms that are spearheading dedicated efforts

    to support and promote women within their ranks, understanding that ones abilities and accomplishments should not be based on gender.

    Further, there are many benefits to pairing those who are newer to the field with those who are more seasoned, as demonstrated when mentors are paired with mentees. It is for this reason that our firm is launching a Mentoring Program where more experienced professional women will mentor recent college graduates to help them navigate the field, toward maximizing their success.

    So Thank You to all of the individuals and firms that support, and exemplify, progress for women in our industry. We are pleased to honor each of you, and know that this is only the beginning.

    We hope you enjoy the issue!
