“I’m honored to be recognized as one of IREM’s 2020 DISI Leaders. This is a wonderful opportunity to receive mentorship, and to grow my professional network, while I continue to pursue my CPM designation,” says 2020 DISI Leader, Whitney Lane. “I’m grateful to be a part of an organization that values diversity and promotes inclusion.”

“At IREM, we believe a diverse workforce increases creativity and performance, and we’re dedicated to advancing diversity and inclusion across the real estate management profession,” says 2020 IREM President, Cheryl Gray, CPM®. “We’re excited to celebrate and recognize these members for their leadership and dedication to advancing underrepresented groups, while also enhancing their organizations’ performance.
