SVAR's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee

The DEI committee will work together for 6 months meeting every month if necessary. We are looking for volunteers that represent our association’s diverse membership for the committee. SVAR Members can expect to see changes to association activities that will bring more member participation and enrich professional experience.

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.
