Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At The Associated Management Company, we believe that a diverse, equitable, and inclusive society is built on the foundation of equal opportunities and access to essential resources. We are committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in the rental housing industry, recognizing the profound impact it has on individuals, families, and communities. 

Our mission is to create an environment where everyone feels valued, respected, and empowered. We firmly believe that housing is the foundation for wellbeing in our society. We fight to correct historical inequities and work towards a more equitable future for all. We understand that building a truly diverse and inclusive society requires ongoing effort, adaptability, and a willingness to learn. We recognize that there is still work to be done, and we remain steadfast in our commitment to driving positive change within the rental housing industry. 

To fulfill our commitment, we undertake these principles:  

Equal Opportunity: We advocate for fair and unbiased access to housing opportunities. We reject any form of discrimination, including but not limited to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, or disability. We actively promote policies and practices that ensure equal treatment and opportunity for all individuals in their pursuit of safe, affordable, and quality housing. 

Inclusive Culture: We strive to create an inclusive culture within our organization and for our residents to enrich their lives, contributing to a vibrant society. We seek to build social connections and bridge differences and celebrate each other. 

Affordability and Accessibility: We recognize the urgent and ongoing need for affordable and accessible housing options. We are dedicated to working towards solutions that address the housing affordability crisis and ensure that housing is within reach for individuals and families across various income levels.  

Community Engagement: We actively engage with communities to understand their unique needs, concerns, and aspirations. We believe in the power of collaboration and partnership to drive positive change.  

Education and Awareness: We are committed to raising awareness about the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in housing. We provide educational resources and training to our employees, partners, and stakeholders to foster understanding, empathy, and cultural competence. By promoting dialogue and knowledge-sharing, we aim to dismantle biases, challenge stereotypes, and create a more inclusive housing industry. 

Together, let us create a world where everyone has access to safe, affordable, and inclusive housing, and where diversity is not only accepted but celebrated as a source of strength and resilience.
