Equity, Inclusion, & Diversity

CoreNet New England's Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity (EID) committee is dedicated to raising awareness, providing education, and delivering programs to our members that promote and support equity, inclusion, and diversity in our community and within our Chapter. Our goals and objectives are to:
    • Align
    • Promote
    • Raise Awareness
    • Create
    • Empower
    • Identify, Attract, Retain
    • Educate

As CRE professionals, we influence design decisions around space, which can distinctly impact how and where people see themselves living and working in their space. We also manage access to space and are tasked with creating a "place" where people want to succeed and thrive. We represent a diverse yet significant portion of jobs in America, which should be reflected in the workplace. We have the ability and power to influence decisions on the supply chain, where diversity spending is possible, and we impact and support company culture through the spaces we deliver. We are excited to lead many engaging and necessary conversations in the CRE world and to grow our impact within CoreNet New England. Please reach out to Mark Watkins with any ideas or suggestions for this initiative.
