Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement
Adopted by CAI Board of Trustees on August 18, 2021:
Community Associations Institute is committed to making diversity, equity, and inclusion a core aspect in our membership, on our staffs, and within the community association housing model at large. We firmly believe in the unique strengths of every individual and that diversity makes organizations more successful and communities more fulfilling. By actively cultivating diversity, we benefit from a vastly richer mix of ideas, perspectives, and life experiences that expand our thinking and our possibilities. We strive to foster a culture of discovery, innovation, and service as we continue to focus on our mission to build better communities.
After hearing stories of residents unwilling to talk with their neighbors to settle disputes and the increase of complaints filed with management, the Foundation for Community Association Research conducted a survey in the fall of 2020 to help us better understand the issue and to identify factors that contribute to creating community harmony.
Read the report, download the guide, and join us in building community by adopting the Community Association Equality Pledge.
"Community Associations Institute (CAI) is unique in that we touch the lives of more than 73 million Americans living in condominiums, housing cooperatives, and homeowners associations. Our mission has always been about building better communities. We believe that the purpose of community associations everywhere is to bring people together, strengthen neighborly bonds, promote a sense of belonging, and build a place where we can connect..."
