To help REALTORS® succeed and expand their business opportunities in today’s rapidly diversifying real estate market, and to help Associations to grow and prosper through well-planned, well-executived diversity initiatives, the National Association of REALTORS® offers several educational opportunities.
For REALTORS®, Agents, and Brokers
At Home with Diversity® Certification
NAR's At Home with Diversity® certification is a 6-8 hour course that focuses on teaching those involved in daily real estate transactions how to best work with and serve diverse consumers. Learning how to transact business in culturally competent ways makes good business sense. Participation earns credit toward the CIPS, CRS and PMN designations as well as fair housing continuing education and the NAR At Home with Diversity® certification.
Leading with Diversity: A Business Imperative in a Changing World
Robust and growing Associations understand that cultivating a diverse membership that adequately represents all segments of their communities is an integral part of long-term stability and success. NAR offers this three-step training process for association executives, association staff, and member-leaders interested in seeing their associations flourish and grow with the changing times. The Leading with Diversity program is designed to help Associations develop strategies to reach out to real estate agents in their communities and achieve their diversity goals. The three-prongs of this approach are:
Part One: Leading With Diversity: Three-hour Planning Workshop
Part Two: Diversity Toolkit for REALTOR® Associations
Part Three: Diversity Initiative Grants
