DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION FOR ALL
NIRA supports Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. We also profoundly support a continued commitment to Fair Housing as part of our core values.
Seeking ongoing knowledge and partaking in ongoing dialogue through a variety of perspectives and resources allows us the ability to learn from the past and provide solutions for a better future. We all have our own implicit biases. In discovering what are we can implement change to better ourselves and achieve progress moving forward.
The Northwest Indiana REALTORS® Association represents nearly 3,000 REALTORS® in Northwest Indiana and is committed to a membership culture where diversity, equity and inclusion are integrated into every aspect of our organization.
