What Moves Her® was introduced in 2020 to help women in the real estate industry develop their leadership skills and realize their professional development goals.
Launched as a campaign for women leaders by Sue Yannaccone, President & Chief Executive Officer, Anywhere Brands, What Moves Her aims to inspire and support all women to find their path to leadership and business success in real estate. In its first year, a launch event and ongoing Coldwell Banker virtual conversation series, Portraits of What Moves Her, helped guide more than 5,000 women and provided them with tools and strategies to help them continue achieving success in their personal and professional lives.
What Moves Her has significantly moved the needle with what has been accomplished… but our exciting work has just begun. The commitment to support and educate women real estate professionals industry-wide will continue to drive What Moves Her to help more women grow through leadership programs, tools and resources, workshops, events, and more.
