DIVERSITY IN COMMERCIAL

REAL ESTATE

Diversity in Commercial Real Estate is focused on commercial real estate, real estate investing, technology, opportunity zones and more! Our annual conference is the place for attendees to do business, network and learn about issues that affect commercial real estate development in around the nation. Speakers have backgrounds in development, law, finance, and other nationwide commercial real estate initiatives and policy.

 

We focus on diversifying the commercial real estate industry from the executive leadership and entrepreneurial perspective. People of color hold less than 1 percent of CRE senior executive positions nationwide.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...

"This conference brought together global leaders in commercial real estate, under one roof to discuss overcoming barriers to opportunity in the field. the diverse and dynamic group of speakers and panelists provided in-depth insight, as well as actionable practical tools of engagement models, methods and mechanisms (3ms) that have worked for them; and were able to share how the 3ms could be utilized to discover, develop, and deploy new diverse professionals. covering key areas such as affordable housing, new market tax credits, deal financing, and deal packaging, and opportunity zones, this conference was beyond expectation and provided something for everybody! this is what doing the work looks like. can't wait to see more from AGN.”

- Maurice Robinson

"The Diversity in Commercial Real Estate Conference was a unique experience, in that it took on the very bold and necessary task of bringing together some of CRE’s most important players to engage in dialog about the industry and more specifically the value that diversity brings to commercial real estate. The panelist were incredibly engaging, the discussions were informative, and the energy was electric!"

- Claudeen Pierre

After being so inspired at avant-garde network women of color and capital conference. I signed up for their diversity in commercial real estate event. The event was awesome! I've been in law, real estate, and finance for 15+ years and found the conversations and people to be on point. Must attend!

- Laurel Brown, Economic Development Executive 

"Networking and learning w/ minority talent in the commercial real estate game. hundreds of talented minorities giving up their weekend to learn, strategize, network and partner. today's momentum and commitment will help establish diversity and inclusion as a norm in the CRE industry."

- Gabriel Troncoso,  Regional Manager, The Domain Companies 

 

“I have been to a lot of commercial real estate conferences and It's [DCRE] the largest concentration of minorities that I have seen at a commercial real estate conference" 

- Brad Neilley, Senior Vice President, Human Resources & Facilities AvalonBay Communities, Inc. 

"I've seen so many groups of different sizes trying to access capital. I've been in real estate my whole life and I've been to conferences and events, but I have never seen this many people at color at a single event for Commercial Real Estate"

- George Scott, Senior Real Estate Investment Officer, New York Common Fund
