Quadel President, Katie Goar, will participate in two events focusing on women in leadership at NAHRO’s 2023 National Conference in New Orleans.

The National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO) has always promoted inclusivity and diversity within the housing and redevelopment industry. In this spirit, the Women’s Leadership Breakfast returns this year to celebrate the achievements of women making significant contributions to their communities and offer encouragement and inspiration.

Quadel is a co-sponsor of the event alongside CSG Advisors. Quadel President, Katie Goar, will give opening remarks and looks forward to sharing the morning with other female industry leaders.

Stronger Together: The Theme of the Event

The 2023 Women’s Leadership Breakfast revolves around the theme of ” Stronger Together”. In an industry that faces various challenges and constantly evolving landscapes, this theme is more relevant than ever. Goar’s leadership journey mirrors this theme. While she has consistently showcased resilience, determination, and a pledge to instigate meaningful change, she readily acknowledges the collective effort that drives success.

Goar is not only a successful leader but also a passionate advocate for empowering women in leadership roles. She understands the unique challenges that women often face in male-dominated industries and has dedicated herself to breaking down barriers and promoting diversity and inclusivity.

“Decades of experience in the industry has given me unique lessons I want to share with other women in our industry so I helped foster the idea of hosting the breakfast and a special leadership panel,” Goar said. “It’s important women gather and talk about issues they face. We can learn so much from each other and spark change.”
