On February 11, 2020, the BOMA/Chicago Foundation Diversity Committee hosted a Youth Motivation Career Day at Fenger Academy High School. Fenger is a public four-year high school located in the Roseland neighborhood on the far south side of Chicago.

From 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., twelve BOMA/Chicago members gave presentations to 220 students that focused on all aspects of commercial real estate and career paths in the industry.
