Maureen Boyer, Associate Principal, and Kelly Elmore, Designer, represented ELS at ULI SF’s Women’s Leadership Initiative panel.
The event, which included participation from a number of professional women at all stages in their careers, was designed to connect young women to potential internships in the commercial real estate, land use, and development space to explore the vast selection of real estate careers.
ELS was one of the dozen-plus participating firms at the event that will offer informational interviews for potential internships for the summer of 2018. According to Kelly:
“This event offered a great opportunity for the undergraduate women students to talk to mentors about what it’s like to work in the fields of architecture, development, engineering, etc. I noticed that a lot of young women are very passionate but unsure, like I was, about how to choose between their different interests. The mentors advised that one does not have to choose; it’s good to have a variety of interests and skills, as those can be applicable to different professions.”
