Acknowledging the need and appointing a principal are only the start of your organizations’ diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) journey. The work that it takes to develop a culture that embraces inclusion and belonging goes beyond the window dressing of a new title. Endowing these leaders and their teams with authority and resources to build out DE&I programs is a key strategic investment in the longevity of your enterprise. Sit down with DE&I Leaders, Crystal Dukes and Monica Frazier as we explore what it takes to genuinely support DE&I in the rental housing industry, consider the impact on DE&I leaders once their appointed and learn how to help them and your DE&I program thrive.
Date and Time: Tuesday, October 17 at 2 p.m. ET
