The CREW Network CRE Pledge for Action
To Advance Women and DEI
CREW Network invites industry CEOs to commit to these goals by signing on to an industry-wide pledge to DEI. Our pledge supports the advancement of women and other individuals in underrepresented groups including but not limited to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability, religion and age.
CREW Network recognizes that each company has unique qualities, cultures and strategies for advancing DEI. We honor your individuality and recognize that your company is at the very beginning steps of an overall plan for making change. We embrace your commitment to this early stage by asking you to sign on to our Phase I pledge to demonstrate your commitment to change.
This pledge is a commitment to six goals:
Partner with CREW Network to support our mission to advance women and begin your efforts now to make change.
Close the compensation gap in our industry by conducting a pay equity study in your company.
Increase inclusion in your company through senior executive sponsorship of women and/or other individuals in underrepresented groups within the company.
Advance women to your company’s top roles to achieve gender diversity in leadership.
Increase diversity in your company and in the industry through intentional recruiting and hiring of individuals from diverse backgrounds.
Implement accountability strategies in your company to measure progress.
When our benchmark study is released in 2025, we will instigate a Phase II of our industry-wide efforts to gauge next steps. We appreciate your commitment and support.
