In our Leading Voices in Real Estate season five premiere, Matt is rejoined by Tammy Jones, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Basis Investment Group, a real estate investment manager primarily focused on debt and structured equity strategies. Tammy was a participant on the Black Voices in Real Estate episode released in June, where she shared her experience as a Black woman in the real estate industry and the opportunities for change in racial equity in our business. Now four months later, this episode continues with a discussion on whether the Black Lives Matter moment offers a temporary or permanent path towards inclusion in our business. Tammy also shares her experience building a career as a Black woman in the business and starting Basis Investment Group as one of the few certified Minority and Woman-Owned Businesses in real estate investment management. Tammy tells us her career journey, from becoming the first female in her family to attend college to founding her own business.
Now at 80+ episodes of Leading Voices in Real Estate and in the fall of this year-to-remember, we are embarking on a new Season Five of the podcast. Through the entire Leading Voices series, we have had the opportunity to share the career journeys and countless stories from people, across the wide range of the real estate industry, who have built great companies and made a difference in our built environment. In this time of COVID, social and political change especially around social equity, and new realities quickening around climate change, the impacts on, and responsibilities from, the real estate business are enormous. We will continue, through our conversations in this season of Leading Voices to both tell the career and leadership journeys and lessons that have always been a part of Leading Voices alongside discussions around these real topics deeply affecting our industry. Thanks to our long time listeners for joining us in these conversations.
