CREW SF Begins Outreach to High-Tech Companies
By Denise Yee
With so many high-tech companies moving into San Francisco the last few years, CREW SF’s Rising Leaders Committee and Membership Committee are teaming up to plan membership outreach lunch presentations to the women in the real estate department of local tech companies. Denise Yee, Brand Manager for the Communications Committee, works at Salesforce West building at 50 Fremont and helped to facilitate a CREW SF presentation to Salesforce which took place on October 26th. Twelve Salesforce employees from different areas of real estate attended the presentation, held in a large conference room with the small tables configured in a U-shape to encourage discussion.
Rising Leaders Committee members, Elaine Chan (JLL), and Kena David (BCCI Construction) narrated a PowerPoint presentation about CREW SF, including statistics about the percentage of members in each real estate profession, and examples of some past events and activities. Also in attendance were current CREW SF President, Kristin Paul (PGIM Real Estate), and past Presidents: Frances Choun (McCarthy Building Companies), Elaine Andersson (Bricta Media, LLC) and Laurie Gustafson (Burke, Williams & Sorensen, LLP). They greatly contributed to the presentation by sharing their own personal experiences of how CREW SF has benefited them, such as making connections which furthered their careers along with the friendships they’ve developed with other members. It was a very successful and well-received presentation. The attendees were sent a Membership Brochure and links to upcoming activities and sponsorship opportunities. A presentation to Google is being planned for early next year. If you are interested in having a presentation to your real estate department on CREW SF, please reach out to Elaine Chan (email@example.com) Co-Chair of our Membership Committee.
