2021 Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Sponsorship Opportunities

In 2018, NAIOPWA formed the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee to support its strategic plan and to build and develop a diverse and inclusive culture within the commercial real estate industry in the Puget Sound. The DEI Committee ensures the chapter’s programming, events and other activities reflect the cultural, gender, age and other aspects of our diverse market. The focus is on acting as a resource and leveraging partnerships in order to attract and develop diverse talent industry-wide.

As an annual sponsor of NAIOPWA’s diversity, equity & inclusion efforts, your support will fund:

  • Programming for current CRE professionals and firms such as how to build DEI initiatives within existing CRE firms and how to address implicit bias.
  • Engaging high school students with the Hip Hop Architecture Camp, a program using music to increase the understanding of architecture and expose career paths within CRE.
  • Organizing a summer fellowship program to support college-age summer interns in local CRE firms. 
  • Hosting roundtable events which offer a safe space to discuss diversity and inclusion issues in the industry.
  • Working to remove financial barriers to NAIOPWA membership.
  • Developing a database of resources available to increase understanding of systemic racism, as well as resources for companies to assess and improve opportunities for inclusion.
