Real Estate Balance is a campaigning organisation working to improve diversity and inclusion in the real estate industry
Real Estate Balance was formed in 2015 to address gender imbalance at senior levels in real estate businesses. We have a target of 50% representation of women on boards in our sights, but we have now broadened our scope to embrace broader diversity and inclusion objectives.
We work with industry leaders and senior leadership teams, supporting them in driving cultural change within their businesses and identifying best practice which we can share across our membership, contributing to the enhanced performance of the industry as a whole.
We are a membership body for organisations and individuals who recognise the value of diversity in the real estate industry
Through our campaigning and other activities like our events programme, Toolkit and publications, we facilitate and enable our members to make real progress towards achieving diverse cultures in their own organisations. A key part of our focus is working with younger members of the real estate industry to create an improved supply chain of talent. We also work alongside other campaigning bodies in, or close to, our industry, to celebrate and promote diversity.
The Board of directors of Real Estate Balance and our executive team are responsible for our strategy and governance.Read more
