In light of current protests for BLM across the world, the topic of diversity has been pushed even higher on the agenda of many countries and companies. Long term issues next to potential racial disadvantages, such as prominent gender pay gaps, lack of female and POC leadership, as well as fewer chances for the disabled are hindering the creation of diverse workforces.

To support the global real estate industry, GRI Club is hosting a special one off discussion on the importance of diversity in real estate corporations. In conversation with Ruth King, celebrated author and Founder of the Mindful of Race Institute, the meeting is relevant to any member, who believes in the importance of starting a dialogue to the progress of diversity and inclusiveness within the industry and how their business might benefit.

Thank you to Ron Rawald and Cerberus Capital for the financial support of this event.

This meeting is dedicated to the memory of Ron Rawald, the benefactor of the initiative and supporter of diversity and inclusion in our industry.

"One of the hard truths of reading Ruth King’s book was learning that I was partially colourblind, but in a bad way; I could not see my own whiteness. Me and most white men view our own success as an individual achievement, and coming from a small town in Indiana and ending up on Wall Street, I never felt I had any advantages. But I did.

Look at our industry. It’s dominated by white men."
