Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We're building a place of belonging.

At Compass, we believe that everyone deserves to find their place in the world—a place where they feel like they belong, where they can be their authentic selves, and where they can thrive. To work towards this mission, we prioritize diversity and believe in a culture rooted in collaboration, growth, and mobility.

Building a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive Compass looks like:

  1. Investing in a diverse hiring pipeline
  2. Creating sponsorship programs to support existing employees
  3. Establishing agent mentorship programs
  4. Cultivating community and networking through affinity groups and cultural celebrations
  5. Hosting workshops for first-time homeowners of color to address long-standing inequities in the industry
  6. Empowering our national Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) team
  7. Amplifying our 15% Pledge commitment through campaigns and vendor days
  8. Embedding our commitment to these principles into every part of our company culture

Creating an inclusive culture

Our affinity groups and department clubs are open to all employees, agents, and allies. They celebrate the diversity in our community with dedicated support from our Diversity Council. Each group builds awareness and advocacy through initiatives and programs within Compass.

Championing greater representation

Our recruitment and retention strategies further our goal of creating greater representation across the company.

Internship Initiative

One of our commitments as a company is to create internship programs with premiere nonprofits focused on providing professional development opportunities for diverse talent.

We have partnered with Sponsors for Educational Opportunity for this initiative. SEO is a nonprofit organization that makes a lifetime of achievement possible for underserved and underrepresented communities.

Sponsorship Initiative

Our sponsorship initiative strives to increase diversity representation and helps recognize, retain, and promote underrepresented-in-tech employees (Black, Latinx, and Women). Studies show that engagement and retention increase when organizations have mentorship or sponsorship programs for their employees.

Through the program, participants should feel a greater sense of investment from their team into their career, more confidence in their networks both laterally and in senior leadership, and have clearly defined goals and next steps.

Agent Mentorship

This program seeks to create more opportunities for agents from our underrepresented communities by providing support, partnerships, and access to education and mentorship, critical components of a successful career in real estate.

Expanding equitable opportunity

We're taking action to support underserved communities through impactful engagement.

We're honored to be recognized for our efforts.

Compass had the honor of being featured in Hired's "Inspiring Partners" 2021 Impact Report for our "broad array of initiatives...to advance real, needed change".
