From its start, Redgate has strived to create a community in which every individual can learn, grow and thrive. Through teams of talented and passionate people, we pursue our mission to create great places for people to live and work.
We understand that it is not truly possible to achieve and sustain these core values unless the Redgate team, and our business partners, better reflect the diversity of our broader society and we take more deliberate measures to ensure that everyone at a growing and increasingly diverse Redgate will continue to feel a sense of participation, belonging and community.
Our company culture aims to be one of transparency, collaboration, engagement and prosperity. We recognize that within our industry and society, there exists inequalities in race, gender, sexual orientation, age, ethnicity, religion and more- which can create a different experience in life and work. We therefore must ensure that inclusivity is also part of our culture, and that we extend this into our industry and the communities in which we work.
Our diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging work will include:
- Ensuring alignment in our core beliefs and values
- Designing and reviewing systems, policies, procedures
- Positioning and promoting our practices to our clients, projects and partners and the industry at large
We will focus on ensuring a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace. We will look for ways for our firm to impact our industry and the communities in which we work. This work represents an opportunity for learning and growing, and we recognize all involved come from different life experiences and are in different places on this journey. This work is not an “initiative” with a defined beginning and end. It must be and will be a lens through which we view Equity and Inclusion as fundamentally part of Redgate.
Our commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging
In Our Workplace
At Redgate, we strive to create a workplace in which everyone can thrive with integrity. We recently assessed our DEIB progress, defined a vision for success, and are actively working towards that vision. See our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging Purpose Statement.
In Our Investments
In our investment properties, we proactively seek to work with diverse businesses including minority business enterprises (MBE) and women business enterprises (WBE). We design, build, and manage our projects with the goal of strengthening and enhancing the diverse communities in which they reside. Redgate has also formed a partnership with Catalyst Ventures Development to expand wealth and opportunity for people of color through real estate development and investments called Catalyst RCP.
In The Community
Through organizations like CREW Boston and the Builders of Color Coalition, we are actively engaged to improve DEIB across the real estate industry.
