Another month, another meetup with The Urbanist! Our meetups are open to all and free to attend, so come by if you want to meet us or get into the weeds of urban policy. We’ll be at the Belltown Pub today (Tuesday, September 13th) from 5.30pm to 7.30pm. You can find us in the loft space just beyond the bar area.

Our guest speakers this month are Kelly Mann and Kris Wilson. Kelly Mann, Executive Director of Urban Land Institute (ULI), and Kris Wilson, a partner at Perkins Coie, co-lead the ULI Northwest Women’s Leadership Initiative (WIL). Kelly and Kris will discuss perceived challenges and gaps for women in real estate and ULI’s regional efforts to promote diverse leadership at the highest levels for more innovative outcomes. They will also focus on the benefits of women in leadership for better corporate performance and better urban places.

We hope to see you there!
