Leaders from Shawmut’s Chicago office joined BOMA/Chicago Foundation for its Diversity Celebration fundraiser, which raised $84,000 for the Foundation. Michele Murphy, director of the Chicago office and co-chair of Shawmut’s Diversity Leadership Council, was in attendance to support the Foundation and its goal to grow and support underrepresented professionals in Chicago’s commercial real estate industry.

The night included recognition of the 2019 Reginald L. Ollie Inclusion and Outreach Scholar; the scholarship is designed to enable individuals currently working in the commercial real estate industry who are members of historically underrepresented groups to achieve professional development. Shawmut was proud to join the 500 event attendees and sponsor the event.
