At RPM, we acknowledge the historical role the housing industry has played in perpetuating systemic racism. Today, we are reminded how far we have to go and our responsibility to advance racial equity and inclusion. We commit to our employees, residents, and the communities in which we serve to deepen our work in furthering change in the apartment industry and becoming a louder partner for affecting change beyond. To that end, we are solidifying the principle of equity and inclusion into our core company values in order to ensure lasting progress towards these efforts.
We can, and must, do better.
