As social unrest swept across our country in 2020, SCR began asking tough questions of our members. The answers were difficult but provided a glimpse into the discrimination some of our members and their clients experience on a daily basis. Through this introspection, the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council was created.
The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council (Council) exists to create and sustain an inclusive culture at the South Carolina Association of REALTORS® (SCR) that embraces diversity at all levels of our organization as well as throughout our membership. This ensures that SCR is able to promote and champion equity for all home and property owners in the state of South Carolina.
To truly be a member-driven organization where the voices at the table are representative of the entire state of South Carolina. By taking action within the real estate industry, we believe we can affect lasting change within the communities in which we live.
DEI Book Club
The Diversity Equity and Inclusion Council created the DEI Book Club to encourage insightful dialogue between our Realtor® members throughout the state. Our mission is to be a truly member-driven organization where we embrace diversity and provide open forums to discuss matters of historical and cultural importance.
The DEI Book Club will meet via Zoom three times throughout the year.
