Arizona REALTORS® recognizes that we live in a diverse state — not only in our landscape, but in our demographics. We want to elevate what our membership offers to a wide, diverse audience across our state.

 

What Does Diversity Mean to You?

The Arizona REALTORS® Diversity and Inclusion Committee was proud to have Dr. Leonard Moore from the University of Texas lead an important interactive session that helped explain why Black people are pessimistic about the future of race relations in America.

We examined how racial attitudes and practices of the past such as housing discrimination, impact and frame the present.

UPCOMING EVENTS

SEPTEMBER 1st (during Arizona REALTORS Summit)

The Umbrella Effect – 1:45 – 2:25 p.m.

The Umbrella Effect – is a fast paced, course that provides practical steps to make difficult conversations more comfortable, with a focus on awareness and cooperation rather than criticism or shame, so everyone moves forward together. You will be provided with clear examples and equipped with three simple, immediate tools you can use to create an unstoppable, inclusive culture in your business, community, and daily life.

Discovering the “Inclusive You” Workshop – 2:30 – 3:10 p.m.

Take the Umbrella Effect to the next level when the entire group explores topics covered in the Umbrella Effect through active participation and collaboration. Overcome your own biases by moving from conversations led by gut instinct or emotion and instead focus on deliberately inclusive thinking and listening. Each Think Tank is unique, and group led, with the goal of building social confidence and specific, actionable ideas you can use at the end of the workshop.

Confronting the Rush to Hush – Untold Stories from the Front Steps – 3:15 – 3:50 p.m. Curious to know more about Diversity, Equity and Inclusion? Have a question you feel awkward to ask? Our panelists will answer anonymous pre-submitted questions and share the experiences from their journeys.  Expect to leave this session wanting to become an ally to building an inclusive community and business model.
