Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)
Since its founding, fostering an inclusive work environment where all employees feel valued, respected, and have equal opportunities has been important to RREG’s leadership. To help promote this environment, John Combs, a member of the LGBTQ+ community, created RREG’s DEI committee. Its members come from various regions and backgrounds with a common mission: To educate future and current employees and to provide opportunities to groups traditionally underserved.
RREG’s DEI committee has implemented an education platform that helps us identify and address unconscious biases in our workplace. Our goal is to ensure that all employees, regardless of race, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, or any other personal characteristic, feel empowered to bring their full selves to work and to contribute to our company’s mission.
RREG recognizes that the commercial real estate industry is especially challenged in identifying and attracting professionals from underserved communities, including specific gender and ethnic groups. Through focused efforts, our company is comprised of 56% white and 44% non-white employees, and our leadership is comprised of 56% females and 44% males. RREG is proud of the progress we have made so far, and id committed to strive for even more success in making commercial real estate more inclusive and diverse.
In 2022 RREG achieved designation as a Certified LGBT Enterprise by the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce. The National LGBT Chamber of Commerce is the business voice of the LGBT community and the largest advocacy organization dedicated to expanding economic opportunities and advancements for LGBT people. The NGLCC is the exclusive, third party certification body that verifies that eligible businesses are majority-owned by LGBT individuals, and subsequently grants Certified LGBT Business Enterprise (Certified LGBTE) designation to such businesses as part of its LGBT Supplier Diversity Initiative.
