CREW Ireland, an affiliate of Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) Network, has been established to connect, support and advance women in commercial real estate. CREW Ireland is CREW Network’s third global affiliate organization established in Europe, following CREW France in 2022 and CREW UK in 2017. 

On March 6, 2024, CREW Network held a launch and networking event hosted by DLA Piper in Dublin, with more than 55 commercial real estate professionals attending. Featured speakers were Wendy Mann, CEO, CREW Network, Kate English, Director, Head of Real Estate Research, Deloitte, and Maura Dineen, Partner, DLA Piper.  

“We were delighted to welcome everyone to the inaugural ‘Women in Real Estate Networking Event,’ a collaborative effort between DLA Piper Ireland and CREW Network for the formation of CREW Ireland,” said Katie Ryan, Associate, DLA Piper. “Our guest speaker Kate English provided fantastic insights into the real estate market in Ireland. It was super to see so many women from the various professions in the real estate industry come together. There was such high energy and excitement about CREW Ireland. DLA Piper Ireland is proud to have hosted this event alongside CREW Network, and we are committed to fostering an inclusive culture where women in real estate can thrive. We hope that together, we can celebrate our achievements, support one another, and continue to champion diversity and inclusion in the industry."    

“CREW changes women’s lives,” Mann said. “If you want to be part of something that builds relationships and gives you the confidence and leadership skills, CREW is the organization that is all about women, and lifting women and bringing us together to support one another in this industry. CREW Ireland is a great place to start if you want to be part of our global network. Take that first step—you won’t regret it.”
