Leading With Diversity

NAR has resources and tools for your state and local association as you work to build an association more inclusive of diversity and develop leadership reflecting the diversity of your market area.

Why Diversity

In order to be a strong voice for real estate in our communities, diversity in our leadership can help our associations represent all the communities and demographic groups in our market area. Making sure our association reflects and includes leaders who serve all parts of our market will make our associations better advocates for homeownership and private property rights. It will build our commitment to ethics and make sure our association is meeting member needs regardless of the communities they serve.   

Diversity Committee

The National Association of REALTORS® values leadership reflecting the demographic diversity of our nation. State and Local Associations can play a key role in developing an inclusive leadership and should have committees focused on this goal.

Check out the Fall 2020 issue of the REALTOR® AE Magazine dedicated to diversity.
