Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Throughout your real estate career, you are likely to encounter and work with consumers and other real estate professionals from diverse backgrounds. As a broker, you have an obligation to treat everyone you encounter equally regardless of their race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status, or disability. However, it is also essential to foster environments where all feel included and have a sense of belonging.

One way to foster an environment of inclusion and belonging is to familiarize yourself with the celebrations or observances that matter to various groups based on their race, religion, culture, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or abilities.  The following links below will educate you on the various observances and celebrations during the month of May, as well as the rest of the year.
