Global Real Estate DEI Survey 2022


The Global Real Estate DEI Survey is the only corporate study of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) management practices and data benchmarking in the commercial real estate industry. This report provides an in-depth view of DEI metrics relating to:

  • DEI program structure, resources and ownership
  • Policies focused on recruitment, retention, training and development, inclusivity, tracking and accountability and pay equity
  • Employee demographics by gender, race/ethnicity and nationality, across seniority and job function, as well as DEI hiring, promotion and departure trends year-over-year.

About the Survey

First created in 2017 and launched as a dedicated survey covering North America in 2020, the Survey is an annual report tracking corporate practices and employee demographics on diversity, equity and inclusion for commercial real estate. In 2021, the Survey was expanded to incorporate Asia-Pacific and Europe. The Survey is produced by the industry associations and organizations ANREV, INREV, Ferguson Partners, NAREIM, NCREIF, PREA, REALPAC and ULI.

The DEI Survey 2022 represents more than 357,041 full-time employees, $2.34 trillion of assets under management and a cross section of the commercial real estate industry in terms of size, region and business classification. The Survey, conducted between July and October 2022, brings together participation from 192 unique organizations who provided 210 submissions detailing their DEI practices in North America (81.4% of respondents), Europe (12.4%) and Asia-Pacific (6.2%).
