CREW NETWORK | Influencing the Success of the Commercial Real Estate Industry by Advancing the Achievements of Women

Mentoring Modules

CREW Network member mentoring

The success stories of our members often include accounts of impactful mentors, both male and female, who helped grow careers through mentoring relationships. No group is better suited to mentor women in commercial real estate than CREW Network.

Ready to engage a mentor but not sure how to structure the relationship for maximum impact? Interested in starting a mentor program in your chapter? Use the CREW Network mentoring modules as your guide. This tool is a continuation of our career outreach agenda with the following goals:

  • Improve parity and diversity in a male-dominated industry.
  • Build a talent pipeline for future female professionals in commercial real estate.
  • Provide constructive feedback to support growth and success.
  • Increase leadership and career development skills of CREW Network leaders and members.

CREW Network mentoring modules include a four-step process segmenting each protégé's learning into four stages: Engage, Envision, Empower and Expand. Each phase includes basic topical information about one of the core stages with exercises and directions, and where to find accompanying activities for each mentor and protégé. The modules include tools, tips and techniques for principle-based learning and productive follow-through, all available via download in PDF format.

Only CREW Network members may access the mentoring modules. To request access, please email Megan Cottrell.

CREW Network and CREW Network Foundation gratefully acknowledge the Opus Foundation and the James E Gibbons Educational Development Trust Fund for their generous financial support of the CREW Network mentoring modules. Without the support of these dedicated and forward-thinking organizations, this effort would not have been possible.
