The Commercial Real Estate Supplier Diversity Alliance or CRESDA is filling a much-needed void in the commercial real estate industry: supplier diversity. While many companies have amplified diversity, equity and inclusion efforts in the last year, many companies are finding challenges extending those efforts to third-party suppliers.

Nancy Glick, co-founder and CEO of CRESDA, recognized the problem through her another business, Newmark Associates, which is certified women-owned. “It was through working in this environment that I realized there was a hole in connecting with larger corporations,” she tells GlobeSt.com. “The rhetoric was all there, but they weren’t extending it to professional services. Through working in that environment, I realized that there were many other smaller commercial real estate agencies across the country that were having similar struggles.”
