We are proud to share that A&B has been named the Silver Corporate Award winner of Nareit’s Annual Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Recognition Awards (DEI). The winners (including two other companies and an individual) were selected based on the scope of their DEI programs, recent accomplishments, and the metrics they report, including, diversity on the company’s executive team and board.
A&B President & CEO Chris Benjamin was presented the award November 18, 2020 during the REITworld 2020 Annual Conference.
Additionally, Mr. Benjamin was named to the inaugural Nareit Dividends Through Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DDEI) CEO Council during the conference. The DDEI CEO Council is made up of CEOs from all segments of the REIT industry, and was formed to lead industry efforts in advancing plans that support the recruitment of women, people of color, ethnically diverse individuals, and members of other under-represented groups in REITs and the publicly traded real estate industry.
