Join the Greater Boston Real Estate Board for a joint program on diversity in CRE.


In 2010, the Dodd-Frank Act overhauled financial regulation in the aftermath of the Great Recession. In 2012, Inclusion was introduced and endorsed for the first time in the 100-year history of the Federal Reserve system. Since then, the Fed has been committed to increasing DEI within the financial services industry.


Join Kirk A. Sykes, Managing Partner at Accordia Partners LLC and former Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and current member of the External Diversity Advisory Board, as he and Marques Benton, Vice President, Chief Diversity Officer and Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI) Director at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, discuss how and why the Boston Fed adopted a multi-pronged strategy for change.


During this candid conversation, Benton and Sykes will outline the Boston Fed’s successful 5 Step Inclusivity Strategy, which resulted in real change. As the CRE industry remains focused on the need to dramatically expand DEI, small incremental change is no longer enough.


Commercial real estate professionals are invited to attend this free event in order to listen, learn, and identify actionable steps to increase Diversity, Equity and Inclusion within the industry.



While space is limited, the event will be recorded and shared.
