WE ASKED WHAT WOMENHAVE LEARNED AS THEYCONTINUE TO MAKE INROADSIN COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE.
HERE ARE THEIR ANSWERS.
BY NATALIE DOLCE Afew years ago, a New Yorker cartoon by Jason Adam Katzenstein depicted a man and women on a date, seated at a dinner table drinking wine. The man looked happy, the woman stern, and the quote below the cartoon simply read, “Let me interrupt your expertise with my confidence.”That cartoon still is on the mind of Jennifer Carey, CEO of JLC EnvironmentalConsultants, who is featured as one of this year’s Women of Influence.
“As people and as women, we need to boost our confidence,” she tells GlobeSt. RealEstate Forum, when talking about how to succeed in commercial real estate as a woman.That, she said, as well as always being prepared.
