Equal Opportunity and Cultural Diversity Program

As America becomes more diverse, the top goal of immigrants is to own their own home. REALTORSŪ can help buyers of any cultural background achieve the American dream of homeownership. Knowing how to work effectively with diverse populations can help you build business success in today's multicultural real estate market.

NAR's Equal Opportunity and Cultural Diversity program offers education, grants, partnerships, and events for REALTORSŪ. This section provides information and tools to help you connect with diverse groups and create business opportunities. Learn about the business case for diversity and inclusiveness, discover leadership opportunities, and find out about fair housing and equal opportunity.
