Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging

At Berkadia, we believe People Matter. In an industry that historically has not been reflective of the diverse world in which we operate, it is our commitment to our colleagues and partners that we drive change and positively impact the communities we serve. That’s why we proudly stand behind BELONG, a cornerstone of our values-based culture dedicated to shaping an inclusive workforce with diverse perspectives that enable us to become a better Berkadia.​ 

Berkadia's Employee Resource Groups

Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs,  BeWIN, BePROUD+ and BeUNITED, are voluntary, employee-led groups that create a safe space for employees to share ideas and foster opportunities to learn about each other’s cultures, backgrounds and experiences.

BeWin: Berkadia's Women's ERG

BeWIN’s mission is to develop, mentor and promote initiatives that focus on the diverse women’s community and allies at Berkadia to support career growth and advancement. Their purpose is to facilitate the development and maturation of strong connections, and support women across the company, while creating a safe place for women to grow in their CRE careers.

BeProud+: Berkadia's LGBTQ+ ERG

BePROUD+’s mission is to foster and cultivate community, mentorship, professional development and networking opportunities among Berkadia’s diverse LGBTQ+ employees and allies. Their purpose is to address underrepresentation and eliminate barriers for Berkadia’s LGBTQ+ employee base to promote diversity and retention in order to better achieve shared business outcomes.

BeUnited: Berkadia's Multicultural ERG

BeUNITED’s purpose is to create a network focused on empowering, connecting, developing, and supporting​​​​​​​ employees regardless of race, ethnicity, or nationality thus resulting in a stronger, united workforce. They are committed to honoring and celebrating multicultural identities and embracing diversity among the different dimensions of race, ethnicity, culture and beyond.

Berkadia Way

Our culture, or Berkadia Way as we know it, encourages us to truly see people as people, with unique needs, challenges, and objectives. We take this into consideration when working with each other, engaging our clients, and supporting our communities. Thus, instilling a mindset that fosters our shared commitment to self-accountability helps us see our impact on each other and adjust our efforts accordingly. Diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging is at the core of this mindset, and we believe that we are uniquely positioned to meet current and future aspirations because of it.


In March 2023, Berkadians, clients, and partners gathered in Charleston, South Carolina for our inaugural Berkadia ONE Forum. This industry-leading event was designed to promote the interests of minority-led commercial real estate firms and executives of color through engaging discussions and energizing activities.

“It was the first time that I had been in a space with my peers where we could have meaningful conversations about some of the challenges we shared.”
