There’s so much noise across our country right now about racism and equal rights. We’ve seen protests and riots, landmark decisions for Marriage Equality and LGBT anti-discrimination legislation for employment, we’ve seen books and speakers and memes on white privilege and black lives matter and immigration. We’ve seen videos of things we can’t be unseen. Regardless of the REALTOR® Code of Ethics, fair housing and discrimination our profession suffered a blow with the Long Island undercover study by Newsday. Add divisive politics and Covid-19 and to mask or not to mask, major disagreements about master bedroom language, and it’s clear we’re facing a challenge, both as REALTORS and human beings, to find a way to contribute something good to the conversation on diversity and inclusion. We have 4 thought leaders to join in a panel discussion on ways we can all make a difference and move forward. The panel shares ideas, tools, and direction for those who are interested in elevating the conversation, quieting the noise, and continue in the direction of diversity inclusion.
