2020 has been a year of change for many reasons – some positive and some less so. I have some positive news that I would like to share with each of you.
We have decided to update our chapter name from CREW Philadelphia to CREW Greater Philadelphia. This more accurately reflects our mission to advance the success of women in commercial real estate across the entire greater Philadelphia region.
Similarly, as a chapter, we intend to strive to be greater in increasing the diversity of our membership, not only geographically, but through intentional efforts towards diversity, equity, and inclusion which we will be employing throughout the remainder of this year and beyond.
Additionally, we are updating our visual chapter identity to align with CREW Network by adopting a new logo that signifies leading women and the industry into the future. This strengthens the connection between our chapter and CREW Network, serving as a reminder that we are part of a network of 12,000 members worldwide, which is transforming the commercial real estate industry by advancing women globally.
Those attending our 4th Annual Golf Outing on October 7th will have the opportunity to see the use of the new brand in action. Over time we will also work to update our website, communications, and other materials to reflect this transformation.
We hope that you, along with our chapter Leadership, find these changes to be exciting and positive and we look forward to your ongoing support and participation as we continue to advance our mission.
