Hollander opened the presentation with the Maya Angelo quote “each time a woman stands up for herself she stands up for all women.” Most women face a time in their careers when, due to their gender, they’re harassed, evaluated unfairly, or excluded from conversations. For example, the wage gap between men and women in commercial real estate has widened over the past five years, leaving women at all levels underpaid, underrepresented and increasingly unsatisfied with their careers in 2020, according to a new benchmark study report by the Commercial Real Estate Women Network.
Hollander pointed that critical times to stand up for oneself and other women are during promotion, hiring, compensation discussions, appointment to corporate boards, leadership and senior positions of authority and selecting panelists for presentations.
“The homebuyer must then weigh the risk of purchasing a waterfront property in a flood zone versus buying a home in an area that does not offer the same lifestyle,” says Suzanne Hollander, an attorney and real estate professor at Florida International University in Miami.
