IDEA stands for inclusion, diversity, equity and allyship. The Committee was created to develop meaningful allyship with local BIPOC and other causes representing marginalized women. Acting as a resource to those in the commercial real estate industry on their learning journey, CREW Vancouver’s IDEA Committee is committed to bringing awareness to these important topics and is also here to serve as a resource to the industry at large.
Below are additional links and resources for various important commemorative days. The latest resources are focused on National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
Today, CREW Vancouver acknowledges and pays respect to National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. On this day, we honour the children who never returned home and Survivors of residential schools, as well as their families and communities.
In June, we commemorate National Indigenous History Month. During this month we take time to listen, learn about the rich history, recognize the heritage, resilience and diversity of First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples across Canada.
A recent study from CREW Network found that women continue to occupy just under 40% of the roles in commercial real estate; a statistic that has not changed much over the last 15 years. Hear from senior women in the industry on the importance of diversity, continued challenges and advice for young women progressing in their careers.
While Black History education is a year-round endeavour, we are pleased to share three sources of inspiration drawn from this commemorative month in Vancouver and our broader community
