Navigating work, housework, caregiving, and homeschooling is a daily challenge for many of us during COVID-19 - and many working women bear an unfairly large burden. Here are some practical resources that shed light on the load women carry, share ways to re-strategize about what you need, and suggest strategies for juggling it all. Let's hear how these top producers maintain a balanced work-family lifestyle during COVID-19.

The Asian Real Estate Association of America (AREAA) respects the life of every individual regardless of race, creed, gender, sexual orientation, or country of origin and embraces the value of diversity, inclusion, and equality. We stand with our AREAA membership in calling out the racism and the violence towards George Floyd and our African Americans brothers and sisters across the country. Racism, whether intentional or implicit, is wrong and tears apart the fabric of American democracy.

As an organization dedicated to minority homeownership and wealth-building, we understand that racism extends to and even plays a role in the quest for housing. Hence, we abhor any form of racism.

Together with our membership throughout AREAA, we will continue to exemplify the values we have set as a community of real estate professionals, promoting understanding and embracing diversity as we provide real estate opportunities for all. We stand against divisiveness and call for all Americans to stand together and constructively heal our divisions.
