Please join the Brown Club in New York and the Brown University Alumni in Real Estate Group (BREG) for a dynamic panel discussion featuring prominent architects, builders, developers and real estate professionals…all of whom are women and Brown Alumnae. Learn how these women chose their fields, built successful careers and navigated through professions often characterized as male-dominated. Hear compelling tales from this group of innovators, risk takers, game changers, and visionaries. The discussion will touch on the defining moments in their careers, their roles as mentors, and what these professionals hope to see in the future of the business of design and real estate.
Collectively, these women are responsible for groundbreaking projects and high profile deals including: Hudson Yards, The New Whitney Museum of American Art, Eataly, Tommy Bahamas flagship (New York), Big Brother Big Sister headquarters (Houston), Planned Parenthood, and more.  
This event is designed to be highly interactive with audience participation.
