CBRE hosted its first-ever simulcast for members of its Women’s Network

Live Event Viewed by Thousands Of Members Worldwide

Los Angeles, 2017-Nov-16 — /EPR Retail News/ — CBRE hosted its first-ever simulcast for members of the CBRE Women’s Network, on November 9. The live-streaming presentation, called “A Conversation with Amy Cuddy,” was viewed by more than 3,000 CBRE women and men across the U.S., Canada, Latin America and Australia.

Amy Cuddy, the keynote speaker, is a Harvard Business School professor who studies how nonverbal behavior and snap judgments affect people in business settings. She spoke in person, exclusively to the Women’s Network at the main event in New York City, and her presentation was broadcast to more than 80 CBRE viewing locations worldwide.

The simulcast was the cornerstone of a half-day, professional development opportunity for all CBRE women. Along with the live presentation, each local event included a special program that focused on professional success, and offered members additional opportunities to gain vital knowledge, make professional connections and build business-related skills. Women at the event were also able to connect directly with attendees in locations around the world through social media and an exclusive event app.

“The Women’s Network strives to provide programming and valuable experiences for all CBRE women,” said Lisa Konieczka, the network’s chairperson and executive vice president in the company’s Chicago office. “This one event has sparked deeper conversations about our own ‘personal power,’ created connections across the company and provided thousands of Women’s Network members with content, ideas and opportunities that will move them closer to their professional goals.”

The CBRE Women’s Network was formed in 2000 and has more than 3,000 members from all levels of the organization, the company’s three regions and every business line. The group’s mission is to “Promote the Success of Women,” which is guided by three key principles: Growth, Connection and Mentorship.

CBRE Cares and Rebuilding Together to continue repairs at the Sylvia Family Shelter in Chicago

Los Angeles, 2016-Nov-02 — /EPR Retail News/ — CBRE Group, Inc., through its corporate philanthropy program, CBRE Cares, will partner with national housing nonprofit Rebuilding Together to continue repairs at the Sylvia Family Shelter in Chicago, Illinois, during its annual CBRE Women’s Networking Forum. This will be the group’s second large-scale volunteer project in as many years at this facility.

On Wednesday, November 2, 2016, more than 200 CBRE Women’s Network members and Chicago-area CBRE employees will work alongside the local Rebuilding Together affiliate, Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago, to provide additional upgrades to the North Side community shelter.

The Sylvia Family Shelter, which is part of the Cornerstone Community Outreach nonprofit, supports families of all types, offering shelter and services to mothers with children, as well as fathers, and families with teens. It serves more than 130 single-parent, two-parent and inter-generational families. It is also one of the few homeless shelters in Chicago that allows fathers to remain with their children.

The volunteer projects at the facility will include deep cleaning, patching and painting walls, organizing donated items, and making improvements to update the common area. Volunteers will also perform some light construction work.

“CBRE Shelter Program projects are an important part of our annual Women’s Networking Forum,” said Lisa Konieczka, Women’s Network chairperson and executive vice president in CBRE’s Chicago office. “It’s a rewarding opportunity for members to roll up their sleeves and work alongside our partners at Rebuilding Together to help the community here in Chicago. By improving the Sylvia Family Shelter, we are also improving the lives of the families who call it home.”

“Through CBRE’s Shelter Program, over 5,000 employees have donated countless hours to volunteer with Rebuilding Together and provide community residents throughout the United States with a safe and healthy place to live,” said Caroline Blakely, president and CEO of Rebuilding Together. “By renovating the Sylvia Family Shelter, CBRE employees will continue to build on that tradition and ensure homeless families in Chicago can continue to receive the services they need.”
