The NAREIM DEI Summit is focused on best practices and resources in recruiting diverse talent into real estate investment management. 


Bringing together real estate investment managers with diversity-focused partner organizations, members will discuss best practices for identifying and recruiting diverse talent to the industry, as well as hear case studies highlighting what is working and what is not working.


The meeting will focus on live projects currently underway in the industry to expand the pool of diverse candidates in investment management, as well as small group discussions, particularly internal corporate strategies for recruiting diverse junior and early stage talent. 

Partner organizations include:

  • REEC

  • Project Destined

  • SIGHTHOUND Search Partners


Best practice group discussions for real estate investment management firms, will ask:

  • At the junior level, what is teachable? What isn’t?

  • What should you really be looking for in early stage hires?

  • How flexible are you willing to be?


The NAREIM DEI Committee looks forward to announcing the Summit agenda shortly
