WILMA’s Women to Watch Leadership Initiative has updates to share as we continue to work on the effort’s core mission of helping develop more women leaders in our area. Here’s what we’ve been up to with various W2W Leadership Initiative programs and what’s coming up next:

CREW AWARDS: WILMA’s Women to Watch Leadership Initiative recently earned nods for its work. Maggi Apel and Vicky Janowski, co-directors of the magazine’s leadership program, won CREW’s Career Advancement for Women award during the organization’s 2021 Awards of Excellence. The award was part of Cape Fear Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW)’s annual event (winners shown above) that also recognizes local commercial real estate projects and teams. Winners also included Julie Andrews, of Logan Homes, receiving the Beth Quinn Excellence Award; Cindee Wolfe, of Design Solutions, for the Impact Award; and CREW past-president Elise Rocks, who earned The Realtors Commercial Alliance of Southeastern North Carolina’s Commercial Lifetime Achievement Award.

LEADERSHIP ACCELERATOR: Our annual women’s conference took place May 24. Through the online conference platform, the Accelerator event centered on refocusing goals. Speakers presented on topics ranging from leading through disruption and change to navigating family and work demands to looking ahead.

LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE: June’s session for the class, a cohort of thirty-two women who meet monthly throughout the year, is on motivating teams and managing conflict. May’s session dealt with building resilience.
