Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach Realtors and the Trident Group celebrated Global Diversity Awareness Month with companywide celebrations during their inaugural Celebrating Diversity Weeks.
During the weeks of Oct. 18-31, each sales office and corporate department hosted celebrations acknowledging the diverse backgrounds and traditions of all of the individuals who make up the company.
“We are proud to celebrate the diversity within our company with a month dedicated to recognizing our different cultures and traditions,” Larry Flick V, CEO of BHHS Fox and Roach/The Trident Group, said in a news release. “We believe that our differences are our strengths.”
In Cape May County, sales associates and employees from the Sea Isle City office celebrated by enjoying a meal together with various ethnic options. In Ocean City, the Ninth Street and 34th Street offices joined together to create a cookbook comprised of recipes contributed by the office members to represent their varied cultures and background.
As the director of the company’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) initiative, Camilo Concepcion has encouraged all of the offices and departments to participate.
“We are so pleased that so many of our sales offices and departments hosted creative, exciting events to celebrate diversity in the workplace,” Concepcion said. “These events are a fun and informational way to recognize our diversity.”
Concepcion continued, “My goal is that we will enjoy the benefits of our diverse perspectives as we strive to reach an inclusive environment where every individual in our company feels a sense of belonging and acceptance for their personal betterment and that of the company.”
