Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Updates

Over the last several years the demographic makeup of the real estate consumer has become increasingly more diverse. The North Carolina Real Estate Commission recognizes the need to cultivate a diverse and inclusive real estate industry.

The Commission is developing programs as a part of our ongoing efforts to engage with and attract diverse, and often times underrepresented, groups of professionals to the real estate industry. One of those programs is a college outreach program in which the Commission is partnering with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in North Carolina. The primary goal of these partnerships is to expose students to, and increase their awareness of, the many career opportunities available in real estate. With the support of other industry entities and organizations, we will accomplish this goal by hosting campus guest speaker series, campus career fairs and other networking opportunities, mentorships, and internships. As the Commission works to develop and implement additional programs, we are always open to your feedback and ideas. If you would like to provide feedback or if you would like to be a part of our programing, please contact us here and Commission staff will be in contact with you.
