Rushing was recognized as a finalist in two award categories at the ELEVATE awards. Produced by CREW Seattle and The Registry, ELEVATE honors diversity and women’s leadership in commercial real estate.

Rae Anne Rushing, CEO and co-founder of Rushing, was named a finalist for the Industry Impact Award. According to organizers, this award “honors a dynamic woman who has made a positive impact within the commercial real estate industry through her entrepreneurial spirit, deal-making, commitment to diversity, or other unique and remarkable achievement.”

Rushing was also named a finalist for the Breaking The Ceiling: Corporate Leadership Award for pursuit of the JUST label and the formation of the REDI, the Rushing Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee.

These awards “provide proof that Rushing not only talks the talk but also walks the walk about the equality of their employees” said Brian Hoang, project electrical engineer and REDI committee member, who attended ELEVATE. “I’m proud to see Rushing among this year’s award recipients.”
