Inclusion in Action: Anywhere Hosts Weeklong Special Impact Series Called Making Moves that Matter

May 29, 2024

At Anywhere, inclusion is more than a buzzword – it’s business strategy. Historically underserved groups make up an increasing proportion of the homebuying population, despite historical inequities and underrepresentation in the real estate industry. Anywhere recognizes the vast potential of these growth markets, leveraging its long-term focus on inclusivity as a business advantage and welcoming more diverse entrepreneurs and agents into the industry to serve the changing homebuyer population.

 

The Impact

In 2019, Anywhere launched Day of Understanding, a day dedicated to building upon its inclusive culture with inspiring activities, rich content, and real conversations. Then, in 2023, the initiative was expanded to an entire Week of Understanding and extended to Anywhere affiliated agents and franchisees as well. Since launching these crucial conversations, one thing has become apparent: inclusion plays an essential role in the Anywhere business strategy and is foundational to future success in real estate. Making Moves that Matter levels up this concept as we address a changing world, industry, and company.

This year, sessions focused on real, tangible, and meaningful progress that is changing the trajectory of the real estate industry. Attendees explored the connection between inclusion and results in every part of the business – people, strategy, and culture – through real case studies, inspiring conversations, and more.

 

Here are just a few highlights from our leaders:

“Inclusion is not just a nice thing to do; it’s critical to our success. Why? We’re the company that empowers everyone’s next move – and that means everyone. Our customers are diversifying faster than ever, and the future of our industry depends on our ability to service their needs.” – Tanya Reu-Narvaez, Anywhere chief people officer.

“What we’re trying to do is jump from acronyms to action and really focus on this idea that inclusion is no longer a nice to have, it is a business imperative because as our customer continues to evolve and so should we. We have to be in the business of earning that business.” – Troy Singleton, Anywhere Integrated Services senior vice president and head of the Anywhere Diversity Council.

“It’s important to do things and try something new to get out of your comfort zone and our Employee Resource Groups allow us to engage with peers and colleagues and learn from them so we can appreciate the diversity we have here in the business.” – Matt Tebbe, Cartus president and CEO.
