Realogy Announces Support for HR 1447
Realogy announced its support for H.R. 1447, the Fair and Equal Housing Act of 2017, which if passed would amend the Fair Housing Act (FHA) under the Civil Rights Act of 1968 to add sexual orientation and gender identity as classes protected against discrimination in the sale, rental, or financing of housing. In its current form, the FHA prohibits discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, and disability.

Realogy Diversity & Inclusion Council
Since the company’s inception, Realogy has had a focus on diversity through diversity and inclusion councils in various business units and across the enterprise. In 2016, Employee Resources Groups were formed to further promote an inclusive culture throughout the organization. Our constituents are focused on four key areas of diversity & inclusion:
- Talent Attraction
- Engagement & Retention
- Culture of Inclusion
Their efforts, which are often highlighted in our social media sites, underscore our objectives of attracting, recruiting and retaining diverse talent across our company and fostering an inclusive work environment.
Employee Resource Groups
Our Employee Resource Groups promote a culture of inclusion throughout the organization. They include: Asian & Pacific Islander Alliance, African-American and Caribbean, Hispanic & Latino, NextGen, RealDisabilities, REALPRIDE, SERVICE – Veterans, and Women.
REALabilities is an ERG that supports people with disabilities. As part of Disability Employment Awareness Month, TRG shared the story of Jen Tompkins, who was an employee in Mt. Laurel, N.J. four years ago when she suffered a severe brain injury as a result of a car accident. She battled back from her injuries and returned to work through an internship that was set up in conjunction with Bancroft, a leading regional nonprofit provider of programs and services for those in need of neurological rehabilitation.
"Employee Resource Groups foster a diverse and inclusive workplace that aligns with our company's mission, value, goals, business practices and objectives."
- Rhonny Barragan, chair, Realogy's Hispanic & Latino ERG
