Increasing DEI in CRE: Best Practices and Common Challenges Webinar
Recorded On: 02/06/2024
Embracing diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) can help firms access a wider talent pool, improve worker retention and better understand the markets they serve. In this webinar, hear from one of the authors of a recent report commissioned by the NAIOP Research Foundation to identify best practices for promoting DEI within CRE firms. The study draws from existing studies on DEI, as well as interviews with a representative sample of practitioners at CRE firms that have pursued DEI initiatives. The author will share key takeaways from the report, which also includes interviews with faculty and staff at undergraduate and graduate real estate programs to examine how universities are working to diversify their programs and how firms can partner with them to expand the talent pipeline.
