The At Home with Diversity® course is a 6 to 7-hour class that can be taken online or in person and addresses the topics of diversity, fair housing, and business planning development.
Fairhaven: A Fair Housing Simulation
Fairhaven is a new, online, immersive simulation that uses the power of storytelling to make learners confront fair housing discrimination in scenarios that we hope feel real. Learners in the fictional town of Fairhaven play the role of an agent. In the simulation, they work against the clock to close four deals. As learners interact with clients and colleagues in each scenario, they will confront some form of discrimination. These are based on real fair-housing cases.
The Fair Housing Act
JTGAR opposes discrimination in housing based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status sexual orientation, gender identity, and national origin. This policy is embodied in NAR's Code of Ethics. NAR also authorizes sanctions in response to a finding that a member has violated any fair housing law, including local and state laws that prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
