The ULI Michigan WLI chapter is proud to present the BUILD UP Breakfast Clubs: Empowering women in real estate to build better communities together. Through this initiative we hope to connect women around the state and make space for conversation and connection.
BUILD UP Breakfast Clubs bring together small groups of women and give them an opportunity to build lasting relationships, engage meaningfully with women working in their field, and build strong networks within their region. Each regional breakfast club is captained by a local WLI champion who arranges the location and time for their breakfast club to meet. The program has been launched in 7 locations throughout the state of Michigan, scheduled to meet individually 4-6 times per year. Locations include Ann Arbor, Detroit, Grand Rapids, Bay City, Lansing, Marquette, and Kalamazoo. In advance of each meet-up, ULI Michigan provides virtual content to be viewed and discussed, and annually provides the opportunity for a live stream, interactive keynote event. Content varies from speakers to recorded lectures and focuses on issues that are important to women in real estate and is guided by WLI members.
After the group broadcasts the speaker or video they discuss the topic further and have more in-depth conversation. Breakfast Clubs are limited to about 15 women to ensure more genuine connections among the group.
