Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
On October 30, 2020, the NSR Board of Directors adopted a recommendation from the Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Task Force for the North Shore REALTORS® Commitment to Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI). This commitment formalizes the association’s ongoing efforts to be a leader on the North Shore who works toward making our communities a better place to live and our industry more equitable.
