On Wednesday night, NAIOP Washington State was honored as the 2019 Association Ally at the second annual Elevate Awards. This honor reflects the work of NAIOPWA’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee to support the objective of providing opportunity and furthering D&I in the CRE industry.

Our Diversity & Inclusion Committee is concluding its second year and has been behind efforts to bring more young and diverse individuals into CRE and NAIOPWA through efforts such as a new D&I internship program, the Hip Hop Architecture program at the UW, and student memberships. The team also hosted chapter events open to anyone involved in CRE interested in learning about increasing opportunities and representation for diverse individuals in our field.

In the words of D&I Committee co-chair Mark Washington, “Without you, it would simply be impossible to touch the lives we impact.”

Thank you again to NAIOPWA’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee for your steadfast efforts to keep the dream alive! 

Co-Chairs: Jonathan Manheim and Mark Washington; Board Liaison: Kris Beason; Committee Members: Meru Belbayeva, Alli Burton, Cait Carew, Jenny Chin, Meredith Everist, Tyson Feaster, Amber Gregory, Winnie Lam, Mia Marshall, Serena Sayani and Gregory Swinton
