Leading With Diversity Program

NAR’s Leading with Diversity program offers resources and support for local and state REALTOR® Associations seeking to increase the inclusion diversity in their leadership.

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 and Inclusion Grants

Diversity and Inclusion grants are available to local REALTOR® organizations for activities that expand the inclusion of diversity in leadership.


The Leading with Diversity Workshop is a three-hour program for your association’s leadership to explore how inclusion of diversity will strengthen your association and identify the types of activities that will work best.  For more information on this workshop, please contact Fred Underwood at NAR.
