The first, “The Challenges and Opportunities of Running a Real Estate Investment Firm in Today’s Shifting Environment,” included panelists Brad Hyler, Joanne McNamara, and Roelof Opperman and was moderated by David Brush.

The program concluded with a second panel that discussed environmental, social and governance issues. It included panelists Caroline Hill, Julie Hirigoyen, and David Sleath and was moderated by Catherine Hong.
