Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
BWE values diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace, how we conduct business and how we, as employees, live our lives.
DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION AT BWE
Our people are our most valued asset. As a mission-driven business, we’re dedicated to building strong relationships and providing quality work and services. Our goal has always been to hire, promote, and include people in business conversations that have diverse ideas, ages, races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, and life experiences. We’re working to integrate diversity, equity, and inclusion in all that we do.
Approaching problems and developing solutions with the widest range of contributing perspectives has been key to our success. BWE realizes that promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion is necessary for the development of our employees and growth of our business.
Don’t just take our word for it. The evidence is in our people. BWE employees feel heard, represented, and valued at every level, from interns to executives. Our advantage is in our inspiring, inclusive, and familial company culture.
Our vision is to see more people of diverse backgrounds in our offices and among our executives. BWE employees feel they are supported through mentorship and strong upward mobility. As a result, we’ve not only increased the number of women and minorities within our workforce, we’ve created the BWE Foundation to ensure the next generation of CRE industry employees come from a wide variety of backgrounds and ethnicities.
Affordable Housing Mission
We support affordable housing across the country. Our mission is to create and advocate for quality affordable housing in thriving communities for people of all backgrounds.
BWE employees participate in initiatives to give back to causes that they care about. From mentorship, cancer research or volunteering with homeless populations, each story is unique.
“During my time here, I’ve found that BWE has a very warm and inclusive culture. From the first day everyone in the office made an effort to get to know me and asked what they could do to make my internship experience ideal. Everyone has been very receptive of my ideas and input as well as being very kind and considerate.”
