A professional organization for women in the real estate industry, WX builds its membership by invitation only. The resultant elite group of executives pursues a commitment to helping women enter and excel in the real estate profession. In keeping with this goal, WX grants scholarships to female students of real estate in undergraduate and graduate programs.

WX also supports students and young professionals through its Mentoring, Conversations, and Perspectives programs. The WX Mentoring program connects new female real estate practitioners with existing members who share their industry experience and stories of success. Young professionals may also participate in WX’s annual Perspectives meeting, where members and junior colleagues discuss relevant trends in New York real estate.
