Just a few weeks away from the 2018 Goldie Gala, honoree Sheli Z. Rosenberg met with members of the Gala Task Force to share her story with key stakeholders of The Goldie Initiative prior to the big night. After a warm introduction by Founder Goldie B. Wolfe Miller, Rosenberg shared her career path and guidance with the group at an informal conversation over lunch. Participants had the opportunity to hear her perspective as a woman leader in the Law and Commercial Real Estate industries over the years. Rosenberg shared poignant stories, valuable advice and fond memories of Goldie as part of her comments. Particularly interesting to the participants were recollections of the early days working with the Equity family of companies; Equity Group Investments and Equity Residential are sponsors of the 2018 Goldie Gala.
When given the opportunity, members of The Goldie Initiative's Gala Task Force were eager to ask Rosenberg pointed questions, specifically on how women can build on her trailblazing experiences and continue to pursue career advancement within the Commercial Real Estate industry. Rosenberg fielded questions on mentoring and sponsorship of women by influential leaders throughout her career. She also gave valuable tips on networking for women in particular and how The Chicago Network - an organization she helped establish - played an important role in her professional experience.
Rosenberg's enthusiasm for women leaders, trailblazing career path, and support of mentoring make her the ideal candidate to receive The Goldie Initiative's inaugural Shero award. We look forward to learning more about Sheli Rosenberg's amazing accomplishments at the Goldie Gala on September 13, 2018.
