Diversity and Inclusion Programs
Diversity is a key priority for the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.). This resource page provides information on various programs and projects available.
Even though the real estate industry is predominantly female, women are underrepresented in leadership positions at both the brokerage and senior management levels. The goal of C.A.R.’s Women’s Initiative is to create a community where mentors and leaders can communicate, collaborate, advocate for, and support one another.
The Latino Professionals Network (LPN) creates community and networking opportunities for REALTORS® to build strong support systems, increase business opportunities and break down barriers. Join our Facebook group today!
