Diversity and Inclusion

SVAR's Diversity Task Force

SVAR looks forward to being a leader in supporting and encouraging diversity, equity, and inclusion in our real estate activities. In this effort, a task force is being established to monitor and develop this mission. We are looking for seven volunteers to participate on this new association project. This is an opportunity for all members, including those from protected classes, to serve on this new and important SVAR initiative. Please contact Danielle Via or Joe Croce at 804-520-4496 to learn more and become a volunteer.


NAR's Diversity and Inclusion Commitment Statement

The National Association of REALTORS® represents more than 1.4 million REALTORS® in diverse communities across the country. NAR staff fosters a culture where diversity and inclusion are integrated into each of our five core values. Through inclusive collaboration and mutual respect for our colleagues, we focus on the principles that matter to the organization and drive how we engage each other to reach our common goals. We fully embrace perspectives from all walks of life—regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, national origin, socioeconomic status, political affiliation or any other qualities by which we may define ourselves. We commit to bringing out the best in ourselves, uncovering our hidden talents, and celebrating differences in our day-to-day interactions. These beliefs are essential as we serve our members who help fulfill the dream of home and property ownership in America.
