Elevate‬: Honoring Diversity and Women's Leadership in Commercial Real Estate

Pankow’s Corporate Communications Manager, Kristina Owyoung Vinson has been nominated for the Commercial Real Estate Industry Impact Award. The ELEVATE Gala, an evening celebrating diversity and women’s leadership in commercial real estate was held on February 25, 2016, at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. 400 attendees filled the ballroom to celebrate ELEVATE which honored employers and trade associations who have implemented programs promoting greater diversity in the workplace, and exemplary women who have made a positive impact on the industry.

Kristina is committed to developing and advancing women as leaders in the commercial real estate industry. She is serving her second year on the Board of Directors of Commercial Real Estate Women San Francisco (CREW SF). During her first year on the board, she co-founded CREW SF’s Rising Leaders Group, the only group of its kind in the Bay Area — for women fresher to the industry seeking development and leadership opportunities and mentorship. The Rising Leaders also received a group nomination. Kristina serves as the Director of the group in which Project Engineer, Ellen Tung is a member.

ELEVATE was produced by a partnership between the three Bay Area CREW Chapters (CREW SF, East Bay CREW and Silicon Valley CREW) and The Registry.
