Women in Real Estate Seminar

last modified Jul 03, 2019 12:10 PM
A packed audience recently filled the Principal's Lodge at Newnham College to hear Prof Sofia Dermisi from the University of Washington, and Cambridge's Prof Siqi Zheng talk about career opportunities in real estate in the university sector and what personally shaped their own careers.

Professor Dermisi is the Runstad Endowed Professor in Real Estate as well as the Victor L. Lyon and Alvin J. Wolff Endowed Professor in Real Estate. She also serves as the elected Program Chair of the American Real Estate Society conference in 2018 and the Vice President of the Society.  She will be the President of the American Real Estate Society in 2019-2020, and only the second woman to be elevated by members in such a position, but the first non-US born. 

Professor Zheng is the Samuel Tak Lee Associate Professor of Real Estate Development and Entrepreneurship, and the founder and Faculty Director of the MIT Future City Lab at MIT. She is the President of the Asian Real Estate Society, the Vice General Secretary of the Global Chinese Real Estate Congress and on the board of the Asian Real Estate Society.

Dr Bing Wang sits on the Board of Directors of American Real Estate Society, and is the director of the real estate programmes at the Graduate School of Design, Harvard University.
