Hello and welcome to 2020!
Before jumping into this new decade let's reflect on our past, learn the mission of our present and lay the foundation of our future.
PAST | Women’s Council exists because for the first 20 years of its existence, women were barred admission from many local REALTOR® associations, so a separate group was created, and in turn, a “women’s division” was formed at the Annual Convention in Milwaukee in November 1938 by thirty-seven women from 9 states. The Council exists today because its 80-year history and legacy is much more significant than “an organization of women”. It is the business leadership skills the Council provides that has positioned the Council as a leader for the industry, for organized real estate, and for political action committees.
PRESENT | Today's mission is that we are a network of successful REALTORS®, advancing women as business leaders in the industry and in the communities we serve.
FUTURE | Below are our Core Values, these are the footings of our foundation and what will establish our story in the future.
PROFESSIONAL CREDIBILITY | Members of the Women's Council of REALTORS® are career professionals who operate based on a shared value system of integrity and respect, and a commitment to excellence and continuous development.
THE POWER OF COLLABORATION | Success in business today is achieved through positive, productive collaboration. The Women's Council of REALTORS® provides an environment in which members support each other and work together to achieve personal growth and business success.
LEADERSHIP | Every business, industry and community needs business who can inspire others and effect positive change. Through the Women's Council of REALTORS®, members can discover and develop their authentic leadership style, apply new found leadership skills, and pursue leadership opportunities across all areas of their personal and professional lives.
INFLUENCE | Positive change comes from greater inclusion of women's perspectives in positions of influence in the real estate industry and in the broader community. OPPORTUNITY | The Council member network is enriched by embracing the full diversity of our industry, and the opportunity to contribute different experiences, ideas and perspectives.
