CHICAGO (April 13, 2020) – IREM’s Diversity and Inclusion Succession Initiative (DISI) is an annual recognition program that helps facilitate leadership and career development in real estate professionals. The program recognizes exceptional leaders in the real estate management profession from underrepresented groups. These individuals have demonstrated leadership at the chapter level and are making a significant impact on the profession and their community.

This year’s cohort of DISI leaders is made up of 10 accomplished IREM members from around the globe:

  • Adeayomi F. Adeyemi, Hazelview Properties, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
  • Jillian Anderson, ACoM, Newmark/ICIS, Houston, Texas
  • Shenea Bankhead, Brookfield Properties Retail, Houston Texas

  • Ninette Patrick, CPM®, ARM®, Habitat America, LLC, Annapolis, Maryland
  • Darryl Stevenson, E&G Group, Laurel, Maryland
  • Samantha Thornton, CPM®, ARM®, Preserve at Rolling Oaks by Cortland, Austin, Texas

“At IREM, diversity is one of our core values and we know that our strength comes from our differences,” says 2021 IREM President, Chip Watts, CPM®, CCIM. “These exceptional members have demonstrated leadership within IREM at their chapters and within their organizations and we’re excited to celebrate them and their achievements. Congratulations to all!”

The DISI program is designed to engage members from diverse backgrounds and foster an atmosphere for them to continue to succeed in real estate. As a DISI leader, these members will receive professional mentoring from other IREM members and receive leadership training and education through IREM courses and programming at the 2021 IREM Global Summit in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Diversity Inclusion & Succession Initiative is supported by the IREM Foundation. The IREM Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity and was established in 1977. The Foundation is exclusively supported through donations from IREM members.
