2021 Global RE DEI Survey Cover image
Report Summary:

The Global Real Estate DEI Survey 2021 presents results from the only corporate study of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) management practices and data benchmarking in the commercial real estate industry, including 161 unique companies, 435,000 full-time employees, and $2.4 trillion in AUM in North America, Asia Pacific, and Europe.

A unique resource with unprecedented levels of insight into employee demographics and internal corporate approaches to DEI, with both global and regionally specific breakdowns, this report provides an in-depth view of metrics such as:

  • DEI program structure, resources and ownership
  • Policies focused on recruitment, retention, training and development, inclusivity, tracking and accountability and pay equity
  • Employee demographics by gender, ethnicity and nationality, across seniority and job function, as well as DEI hiring, promotion and departure trends year-over-year
  • Practices rated as most impactful on DEI, as well as commonly identified barriers

As real estate works to accelerate the implementation of DEI strategies, the first release of this new annual benchmark creates a snapshot of companies across the real estate value chain and allows survey participants to measure and track progress against the wider industry. 

Ferguson Partners, who administered and conducted the survey, recently held a joint webinar with ULI and the 6 other associations involved in the Global Real Estate DEI Survey 2021 to present the findings of the survey in detail. A recording of that webinar is available to watch here
