DEI in Commercial Real Estate Webinar Series

Part II: Diversity at the Top

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Commercial Real Estate webinar series seeks to advance the conversation around opportunities and challenges facing the industry and the important role of diversity, equity and inclusion in creating a better tomorrow.

The lack of workforce diversity is a critical issue facing the commercial real estate (CRE) industry. A recent Bella Research Group and Knight Foundation study found that more than 75% of senior executive jobs in the U.S. commercial real estate industry were held by White men; 14.1% by White women; 1.3% by Black men; and less than 1% by non-White women.

A diverse panel of executives in the real estate investment space will share personal insights on navigating their career paths, what they’ve learned along the way, and how they are reimagining the future. This timely conversation around workforce diversity will explore the consequences of the choices made today, and the opportunities available to impact the future of the industry.
