Compiled jointly by PREA Foundation and the PREA Social Impact Committee, the following list of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) resources is meant to serve as a starting point for organizations seeking to enhance their own DEI programs and outcomes or wishing to support DE&I initiatives industry-wide. It can also be a resource for commercial real estate professionals from underrepresented groups looking to make professional connections and enhance their networks.
To assist users of the list, the focus of each organization listed is indicated using the following general categories:
CRE = commercial real estate industry specifically
RES = general resources, tools, and/or best practices for DE&I programs and strategies
PRO = organizations of practicing industry professionals
INT = interns and internship programs
STU = student/alumni organizations
DEV = development programs for students or other groups
Many of the organizations listed support DE&I in many ways and it is difficult for a simple classification system, such as above, to capture all the programs in which they are engaged. We encourage users to explore the links provided below to get a better idea of how each organization is supporting underrepresented groups in the industry.
This list is not all-inclusive and there are likely organizations doing valuable work in DE&I that do not appear below. The list will be updated on an ongoing basis; please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any suggestions of organizations or links that you believe should be included.
