Why does WomanUP!® exist?
Women account for 60% of REALTORS® in California (67% nationwide) but represent only a fraction of executive and brokerage positions. WomanUP!®, an initiative of the California Association of REALTORS®, exists to support the journey of women to the very TOP of their careers.
We have a three-part mission to identify, develop, and connect women in this industry. We identify the tools and strategies you need to make bold moves in real estate. We provide you with resources and events to develop your skills as a leader. We create opportunities to connect with other amazing leaders in the national brokerage community.
It is no surprise that the WomanUP!® movement has grown exponentially since our inaugural year in 2017. This is an industry filled with ambitious and passionate women who are currently or ready to step into leadership, as well as bold men and women who want to support those women!
WomanUP!® is here to give you the tools you need to make the next bold move in your career.
