Julia Lashay Israel advises, trains, and coaches real estate professionals to recognize and address diversity, equity, and inclusion opportunities and challenges across the organization. She also serves as chair of the newly created Social Equity Task Force for associates and kwx’s internal employee DEI committee.
In 2021, Lashay Israel formulated and conducted two DEI course workshops for kwx. The workshops addressed unconscious bias and its impact on housing, as well as fair housing policy and the historic practices that have contributed to the current homeownership gap in the U.S.
“Now, more than ever, it is imperative that real estate professionals increase their knowledge in cultural diversity, equity, and inclusion,” says Lashay Israel. “Choosing to embrace diversity not only allows real estate professionals to grow their businesses, but also improves communities through increased homeownership. kwx is uniquely positioned to greatly impact the world in this way.”
