Diversity, Equity & Inclusion: Our values and our commitment





BOMA Oakland East Bay: 

As an industry and as an association located in the San Francisco Bay Area, we at BOMA OEB are fortunate to have colleagues representing various demographics and experiences. Hatred has no place in BOMA Oakland/East Bay and we unequivocally condemn racism, sexism and ableism in all their forms. Ours is a diverse and inclusive group but we understand that there is more work we can do to dismantle systemic racism and unlearned bias. We are committed to doing that work. Our list of fundraisers and organizations aimed at supporting and healing portions of our local community that have been especially impacted by the recent turn of events. As we execute our mission to serve the local commercial real estate industry, we will continue to share educational resources and opportunities to best serve the community at large.
