New York real estate has long been viewed as an insular world where white men call the shots. Though issues of discrimination and diversity are at the very least starting to be addressed in other industries, the city’s brokerage, investment and development communities are lagging behind when it comes to leveling the playing field.

For the cover story of our January issueThe Real Deal took an in-depth look at this exclusionary culture, the female and minority players who are defying the odds and what needs to happen for change to occur.

TRD‘s managing web editor Hiten Samtani sat down with senior editor Elizabeth Kim and reporters Kathryn Brenzel and Rich Bockmann to go behind the story.
