  • Complete Fairhaven training
  • Complete NAR’s implicit bias training, and commit to making a conscious effort to employ this training in all your daily interactions
  • Attend Martin Luther King, Jr/Black History Month/Women’s History Month/AAPI Heritage Month, etc. activities; consider sponsoring or getting on planning committees for these events, as well
  • Watch any of the videos that are archived on the WR DEI page
    Join a diverse real estate organization and get actively involved
  • Attend a cultural competency class
  • Devote time each month to reading a book/listening to a podcast about diversity, equity and inclusion (reference the lists on the DEI page as a starting point)
  • Re-evaluate your processes to ensure that all of your clients are receiving equitable service, and explore ways to increase engagement with diverse communities/clients in your area
  • Get involved at the city/county/state level regarding housing issues, and make your voice heard if you feel that proposed policies will adversely affect diverse communities; attend local and state GA meetings to find out how best to affect change in your community
