“It’s an honor to be recognized by such an esteemed organization, one that has long paved the way for the advancement of women in the workplace,” said Allison Bittel. “Through my work within the Atlanta commercial real estate industry and as founder and President of The Women’s Collective, I am devoted to growing this community and empowering the next generation of female business leaders at major companies across the country. ”
Founded in 2020, The Women’s Collective (TWC) is an Atlanta-based 501c6 organization comprised of c-suite and senior level women leaders who strive to support, mentor and influence change for women in the workplace. Through the organization’s newly launched “Leaders on the Rise” mentorship program and other educational offerings, Allison and TWC members work together to inspire and guide women in a variety of industries to grow both personally and professionally.
“We are so fortunate to have trailblazers like Allison on our team as leaders, business partners and mentors to folks who are just starting their careers in the industry,” said Nathan Knowles, executive managing director and market leader at Colliers in Atlanta. “As a company, we are actively working to cultivate a diverse, equitable and inclusive workforce and empower all of our employees to learn and grow from one another’s unique talents and experiences.”
