Diversity, Equity,
Inclusion & Belonging

At Berkadia, we believe People Matter. In an industry that historically has not been reflective of the diverse world in which we operate, it is our commitment to our colleagues and partners that we drive change and positively impact the communities we serve. That’s why we proudly stand behind BELONG, Berkadia’s Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) platform, dedicated to shaping a meaningful and sustainable plan to foster an inclusive workforce with diverse perspectives that enable us to become a better Berkadia. 

Berkadia’s Employee Resource Groups

Our Employee Resource Groups (ERG)s are voluntary, employee-led groups that create a safe space for employees to share ideas, issues or concerns. Moreover, these groups foster opportunities for employees to learn about each other’s cultures, backgrounds and experiences.

Berkadia Way

Our culture, or Berkadia Way as we know it, encourages us to truly see people as people, with unique needs, challenges, and objectives. We take this into consideration when working with each other, engaging our clients, and supporting our communities. Thus, instilling a mindset that fosters our shared commitment to self-accountability helps us see our impact on each other and adjust our efforts accordingly. DEIB is at the core of this mindset, and we believe that we are uniquely positioned to meet current and future aspirations because of it.

Hilary Provinse Reflects on Berkadia’s Women in Commercial Real Estate Conference

Is there a particular piece of advice you’d give to a woman considering a career in CRE?

I’d encourage women considering a career in CRE to nurture and grow their networks and get involved with local groups to build your knowledge of the industry. Focus on making genuine connections and seek them out for advice and help when you are facing change. Take the leap – a career in CRE is fulfilling and exciting!
