Their technology provides 387,000+ investors with the buying power and investment opportunities traditionally reserved for billion-dollar institutions.

How are they building a culture of diversity? The leadership at Fundrise has intentionally built diversity into their culture, from the top down. A few ways they encourage diversity is through the following Employee Resource Groups:
