NAHB’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force was created in 2020 to establish best practices for developing policies to enhance a diverse and inclusive membership that represents all communities that seek the American Dream of homeownership.
“NAHB’s goal is to have a membership that accurately reflects the diverse communities in which we live and work,” said NAHB Chairman Chuck Fowke. “We want to improve the culture by ensuring a welcoming environment where every person can thrive in this industry and create a successful and rewarding career.”
The task force recently created a DEI Compact based on five guiding principles designed to foster and cultivate an association culture that promotes and encourages diversity, equity and inclusion as a foundation of a strong NAHB Federation.
NAHB members, affiliated home builders associations and industry professionals are invited to demonstrate their commitment to NAHB's DEI initiatives by signing an electronic version of the NAHB DEI Compact. Adding your signature to the DEI Compact is voluntary and illustrates you also affirm the principles it outlines.
You can learn more, read the DEI Compact and sign your name at nahb.org/dei.
