The Global Real Estate DEI Survey is the only corporate benchmark for diversity, equity and inclusion metrics and management best practices in CRE globally. The report covers more than 140 pages of individual data points, including, but not limited to:

  • DEI program structure, resources and ownership

  • Policies focused on recruitment, retention, training and development, inclusivity, tracking and accountability and pay equity

  • Employee demographics by gender, race/ethnicity and nationality, across seniority and job function. In 2022, in North America, the Survey reported on non-binary data for the first time.

  • DEI hiring, promotion and departure trends year-over-year

The Global Real Estate DEI Survey 2022, produced in partnership with ANREV, INREV, Ferguson Partners, NAREIM, NCREIF, PREA, REALPAC and ULI, represents more than 357,041 full-time employees, $2.34 trillion of assets under management, and a cross section of the commercial real estate industry in terms of size, region and business classification.


The Survey brings together participation from 192 unique organizations which provided 210 submissions detailing their DEI practices in North America (81.4% of respondents), Europe (12.4%) and Asia- Pacific (6.2%). Data was collected between July 28 and October 7, 2022. The Survey results were released December 13, 2022.

Please note the 2020 Survey was referred to as the 2021 report in the Survey, executive summary and press release, owing to its date of publication in February 2021. All data collected and presented related to 2020 only. The report should therefore be seen as a 2020 DEI Survey.

Only participating members can access the full survey report. The full report is sent directly to designated contacts. For more information on participating in the 2022 report, contact Zoe Hughes.
