The Women's Development Collaborative (WDC) is a network of women leaders who inspire, promote and support women who lead transformative real estate developments. WDC’s mission is to advance women’s success, leadership, innovation and collaboration in building developments that sustain and create thriving communities. WDC’s founding members and sponsors are committed to advancing WDC's mission and our collective capacity to champion and catalyze women-led developments.
Our WDC events will take place Sunday evening (4/14) and Monday (4/15) right before the ULI Spring Meeting. The ULI Spring Meeting runs Tuesday 4/16 through Friday 4/19, and this Spring WDC is changing our schedule in recognition of the Easter/Passover holidays. (Be sure to join us at WDC's LinkedIn Group to stay up to date on the latest event notes!)
