DEI Ambassadors

Sponsored by IREM’s DEI Advisory Council, the DEI Ambassadors offers a new way for chapter leaders interested in DEI to get involved!

Each month, the DEI Initiatives department will facilitate free video monthly calls for DEI champions to share resources, gain ideas for events and activities, and expand their national network. The program is open to any chapter leader and completely voluntary: you can participate as often as you like.

Why DEI Ambassadors? Benefits of the program?

In 2022, the DEI Advisory Council saw the need for chapter leaders to connect with one another to share resources, best practices, and offer support regarding their DEI programming. The Council then Initiatives team at HQ spent 2023 running a pilot version of the program with members from the Baltimore, Chicago, and Houston chapters. 2024 will be the first year of the program’s national expansion.
