CREW Vancouver and Conwest Award for Women in Real Estate (UBC)


We are proud to support this scholarship in honour of Lee Hester's memory as a legendary real estate broker, CREW member, and a true ally in our work to empower women in the commercial real estate industry.

That's why CREW Vancouver and Conwest have joined forces to create an annual $2,000 scholarship through UBC's Sauder School of Business to support the advancement of women in the real estate industry.

We are proud to be working together with CREW Vancouver and Sauder School of Business to establish this scholarship in honour of Lee Hester. Our common mission through this award is to support the advancement of women in real estate and inspire young leaders to pursue a career in this dynamic industry.
