Female-led Mentorship Program Will Cultivate Future Community Leaders
MADISON, N.J. (November 18, 2022) – Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC, a leading real estate lifestyle brand, has launched Sphere, a new women’s leadership initiative to elevate leaders within the Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate brand.
Sphere draws inspiration from a path set forth by Sherry Chris, president and CEO of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC, to give back to the community-at-large through mentorship. The member-directed leadership group will shape and direct the organization’s efforts to empower future community leaders.
“The Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate network is anchored by strong female leadership that epitomizes what it means to be successful real estate entrepreneurs,” said Sherry Chris, president and CEO, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC. “Guided by the brand’s core values of Passion, Authenticity, Inclusion, Growth and Excellence, we believe when more of us invest in the community, we can build better environments and better lives for all. Through the power of mentorship, Sphere offers the opportunity for members to connect with their communities to have a meaningful impact.”
Education and networking will be key pillars of the Sphere program, allowing members to discuss mentorship development and share successes with other BHGRE® affiliated leaders. In addition, Sphere members will work directly with local or community-based programs to create unique mentorship opportunities.
“We are inspired to be part of a network that encourages mentorship and empowerment by women for women in their community,” shared Krista Cherry, Co-Broker/Owner, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Property Shoppe. “We look forward to sharing our successes, values and ideas with the next generations of leaders.”
“As female leaders in our industry, I believe it is our responsibility to reach out to women in our workplace and community and support them in reaching and stretching their goals,” noted Dana Winans, Director of Relocation Services, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Winans.
“The Sphere initiative is another shining example of a brand that not only has core values but lives them,” commented Christian Barnes, president and CEO, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Kansas City Homes. “It is truly inspiring to be a woman in leadership with the BHGRE brand, as I know our support and voice go far beyond the transactional side of the real estate industry. Through Sphere we can shine a light on the importance and impact we can have on the next generation of women leaders in our industry, and more importantly, in our communities.”
