Diversity, Equality & Inclusion Committee

The LBOR Board of Directors took action on July 8th to create a Diversity, Equality and Inclusion Committee. This newly formed Committee will evaluate the initiatives and activities of the LBOR to ensure that we promote a climate and culture that promotes diversity, advocates for equality, and is welcoming and inclusive to all in the community, while the organization serves as a leading voice in our community for private property rights and fair housing opportunities. An initiative like this is made even more powerful with you to stand behind it and bring it to life. The committee is now being formed, and any member interested in joining the committee is encouraged to contact Director of Members Services; Leah Kohlman (leah@lawrencerealtor.com).


National Association of REALTORS® Implicit Bias Training Video:

WASHINGTON (June 10, 2020) – As part of its commitment to addressing racial injustice in America, the National Association of REALTORS® has begun circulating a new 50-minute implicit bias training video to its members and association staff. Partnering with the New York-based Perception Institute, NAR’s online video draws upon recent research to illustrate how the human brain’s automatic, instant association of stereotypes with particular groups can cause people to treat those who are different from them unfairly. Scientific evidence also suggests these biases persist despite people’s best intentions and often without conscious awareness. View the implicit bias training video, click here.
