Diversity Committee Mission Statement

The Diversity Committee is made up of REALTORS®, Affiliate Members and staff of the Greater Northwest Indiana Association of REALTORS® (GNIAR). We are a diverse, and multicultural group that meets to discuss, and execute resolutions towards issues involving Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion (DE&I) that may affect our real estate business, and the people in the communities in which we serve. In following GNIAR’s mission statement our goals are to:

    • Promote and celebrate diversity and multiculturalism through social media, educational workshops, webinars, and events.

    • We strive to be leaders in the communities we represent by supporting and encouraging diversity, equality, and inclusion as it relates to real estate.

We acknowledge that the work being done by this committee is ongoing and we have made a commitment to our peers and to GNIAR in helping carry out this mission effectively.
