Since 2012, the ULI Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) has awarded scholarships to women members to participate in the Fall Meeting. These scholarships are awarded in recognition of a member’s contributions to ULI and demonstrated commitment to real estate and land use issues. Further selection criteria is a member’s ability to articulate the benefits of WLI involvement and Fall Meeting attendance to advance their professional interests and pursuits as well as their future involvement with ULI. Scholarships will be awarded to applicants who have 7+ years in the real estate or land use industry and have shown leadership roles within their District Council or on a national or global level.
We are thankful for Prologis and their generous support of this prestigious program for a second year. Senior women at Prologis created the grassroots group Breakthrough that supports the retention of women and identifies and removes barriers to advancement for Prologis across the globe. Breakthrough’s goals resonate with those of WLI in that Breakthrough strives to create a work environment where women feel connected and empowered, while creating a business culture that offers opportunities for success and recognizes the value of a gender-diverse workforce.
The Fall Meeting Scholarship includes complimentary registration to the ULI 2017 Fall Meeting and a reimbursement of approved out-of-pocket expenses for transportation and lodging, capped at $2,000. Fall Meeting scholarship winners will be assigned a mentor who is an active WLI member. The mentor will host the recipient at her Product Council and will make introductions to her networks at all WLI-branded events. Following the Fall Meeting, each scholarship winner will summarize her perspective on key takeaways from the Fall Meeting to be posted on the ULI website.
