ULI’s Silicon Valley Committee and the Women’s Leadership Institute (WLI) are pleased to present Uncorked: Leading Silicon Valley 2018.

The program is inspired by WLI’s Boardroom After Dark dinner series and will highlight the careers of four women leaders changing the landscape of the Silicon Valley real estate industry. This unique opportunity gets you up-close-and-personal with some of the most dynamic and engaging real estate and land use leaders in the Bay Area. This “four in one” event kicks off with a networking happy hour for all attendees, followed a private seated dinner centered around the careers of our four honored guests. Both men and women are welcome to join. Space is limited to 36 attendees so reserve your spot for this unique opportunity to network with these industry icons and your ULI peers in a small and intimate setting.

How it Works:
Register using the link at the bottom of the page. Approximately two weeks before the event, ULI will send all registrants an interest form asking them to select which of the four leaders they wish to be seated with. We will aim to get everyone seated at one of their top two choices.
