CRE Pledge for Action

Sign the industry-driven CEO pledge and commit to real change in commercial real estate

For more than 30 years, CREW Network has been advancing women and diversity in commercial real estate. Our collective efforts to achieve parity and greater diversity in the industry are far from complete—in fact, very little progress has been made in the last 15 years.

CREW Network invites all industry CEOs to commit to an industry-wide pledge to support the advancement of women and other individuals in underrepresented groups including but not limited to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability, religion and age.

CEOs should hold themselves and their employees responsible for implementing initiatives that support the advancement of women DEI, and for continually and consistently measuring and evaluating progress. Companies that have signed our pledge are sharing their efforts, initiatives, and progress to inspire others and encourage accountability and transparency in creating a more equitable and diverse workforce.
