the goodness we do

We’re committed to making positive change in the corporate real estate industry by identifying barriers of entry and working to remove them, redistributing wealth for traditionally under-resourced and historically excluded people, and nurturing talent to create an inclusive community.

makers program

The Makers program features a collective of Black, Indigenous, People of Color owned businesses that not only make beautiful décor and furniture but can partner with you on projects more closely with services such as custom work and décor consulting.

Our makers program features exclusively BIPOC-owned businesses who have partnered more closely with Porter to provide insight and expertise that’s specific to your commercial project.

on the rise program

In partnership with CBRE, On the Rise exposes and immerses high school students from historically excluded communities to the world of commercial real estate with classes specific to Design, Project + Facilities Management, and Tech trades. The program is designed to help students achieve internships, apprenticeships, or full-time jobs.

emerging leaders

Our six-month Emerging Leaders program led by LaVonne Dorsey brings professional young women in commercial real estate together in roundtable settings to be vulnerable with each other, make lasting connections, succeed professionally, and grow personally. Ultimately, this program is built to create an ongoing network and support among all participants and alumni across all cohorts of the program.
