The Peabody Companies (www.peabodyproperties.com), a group of award-winning property management and real estate firms, was named the Leading Organization in Diversity, Equity & Inclusion by the Massachusetts Apartment Association (MAA) during its recent President’s and Achievement Awards ceremony held at Westin Copley Place in Boston.
The annual event honors the hard work, great service, and important skills within the multi-family housing industry.
The Peabody Companies was recognized for ensuring that all employees feel a sense of belonging in the workplace and was further distinguished for a culture that embraces diversity, creative thinking, and new ideas in concert with a spirit of teamwork and cooperation.
Through its Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, the Peabody Companies has identified areas of commitment: to becoming allies for communities of color; to education; to doing the hard work, not just today but in the future; to being part of the change that needs to happen; and to action.
“It is a very special honor to be acknowledged for our efforts in the areas of diversity, equity, and inclusion,” said Melissa Fish-Crane, principal and CEO of the Peabody Companies. “It is a priority for our organization and has become the fabric of our culture.”
