Held on November 21st at the firm’s Market Street office, the ‘Raise Your Hand’ event was attended by Cushman & Wakefield professionals of all genders from across Northern California. The informative session was organized by Rhonda Diaz Caldewey, who heads the firm’s SF WIN Chapter, and was guided by Kim Morrow of Forte Consulting, an executive and leadership coach.
As quoted Sheryl Sandberg in her book, Lean In, we are facing a “leadership ambition gap.” Why is that? In addition to barriers from society, we hold ourselves back in ways both big and small. Rather than pursuing the big opportunities, asserting our opinions, or celebrating our talents, we equivocate, apologize, or stay quiet altogether – all of which undermines our success.
The main objective of Raise Your Hand was to help instruct attendees on how they can attain more of what they want in their life and career, by applying some of the principles and methods taught by Ms. Morrow.
Cushman & Wakefield’s Women’s Integrated Network was created to develop and support the talents of women team members by providing a platform that values diverse perspectives and leverages leadership skills to benefit our firm, clients and the industry as a whole.
