GWIRE: Global Women in Real Estate. Events

Due to the cancellation of most sister society conferences during 2020, the societies came together under the IRES umbrella to offer an inaugural Global Women in Real Estate event in lieu of the women’s networking and panel sessions held at many regional society conferences.  IRES will continue to organize GWIRE events as long as the women researchers in the sister societies want to meet virtually to learn and network.

The 2023 GWIRE Committee has decided not to hold any global virtual events and instead work to support women’s groups events at the sister society annual society conferences.  Use the links to C-WI(RE)2 and AfRES WOMEN IN SURVEYING AND REAL ESTATE to learn more about plans for their conferences. For further information, contact the 2023 GWIRE co-chairs, Maggie Tang and Esther Thontteh.


In this session, our speaker explored collaborative pathways to anticipating and responding to shocks and stresses that threaten the resilience of real estate and its practice.

The event took place August, 30th 2022.
