Jones Lang LaSalle Holds Annual “Empower. Inspire. Engage” Women’s Summit


CHICAGO and DALLAS, Oct. 3, 2012 – Today, top-performing women from across Jones Lang LaSalle’s Americas network will congregate at the firm’s Dallas office to participate in its annual Women’s Summit, “Empower. Inspire. Engage.” 

Now in its second year, the two-day event brings together 60 of Jones Lang LaSalle’s highest-performing, high-value leaders to partake in professional development workshops and breakout sessions; network with one another; discuss industry trends, issues and shifts that impact their personal career paths and ways women can “brand” themselves in their everyday work; as well as develop strategies to drive recruitment and personal and professional growth within the firm for the growing female workforce.

“We launched the Summit last year to connect women across our vast network with one another and create a platform on which the women could get visibility with leaders, build pipelines to peers and managers and provided them tools to succeed and empower them to become even better leaders and mentors,” said Angela Roseboro, Chief Diversity Officer of Jones Lang LaSalle. 

Beyond workshops and breakout sessions, Women’s Summit attendees will engage in a panel discussion with the firm’s International Directors while also hearing Colin Dyer’s, Jones Lang LaSalle’s President  & CEO, global perspective on the advancement of women. Beyond hearing its internal global leadership, the participants will hear keynote speeches delivered by Pam Patsley, CEO of Moneygram; Colleen Walker, CEO of Girl Scouts; and Elaine Agather, Chairman JP Morgan Chase Bank’s Dallas Region.

In conjunction with the launch of its employee resource group targeting women, Jones Lang LaSalle’s Women’s Summit underscores the firm's commitment to advancing women's careers, as well as the goals of its broader Diversity & Inclusion framework.

“Similar to teamwork, excellence, putting clients first, integrity and respect, Jones Lang LaSalle considers diversity one of its fundamental core values,” said Peter Roberts, CEO of Jones Lang LaSalle Americas. “By supporting diverse talent and executing programs like our Women’s Summit, we’re investing in our people to grow talent and continue providing value to our clients and our people.”
