CREW Boston in the News

CREW Boston President Lisa Serafin shares her thoughts in the March 25th issue of Banker & Tradesman on "Leading the Way to a More Diverse Real Estate Industry." 
Research has shown that diversity at companies leads to higher profits, increased innovation, and exposure to a broader talent pool. Yet as workplaces become more diverse, this evolution is slow to be reflected in the commercial real estate industry. Women and non-white men held a combined 22 percent of senior positions in commercial real estate companies, according to a 2013 report by the Commercial Real Estate Development Association. When taken to the middle management level, the number improves only slightly to 30 percent. Click here for the full article.
