Workforce We will ensure equitable access, opportunity and advancement for historically underrepresented groups. We value difference and strive to build a culture where everyone belongs. We continue to focus on attracting, hiring, retaining and developing top talent, and have built a network of employee resource groups (ERGs) that reflect our people across the firm. ERGs are comprised of employees who are linked by social factors such as culture, gender, sexual orientation, or by a common interest or goal. These employee-led groups foster diverse and inclusive workplaces aligned with our values, objectives and business practices. In 2020, our extensive ERG network continued to grow with the launch of two new groups: LEAD (Leading with Education & Awareness of Disabilities) and PACT (Parent & Caregivers Together).

ERG for LGBTQ+ employees, has partnered with Cushman & Wakefield’s leadership team on a variety of initiatives, including: offering transgender-inclusive health care coverage; updating the firm’s global email signature guidelines to include optional use of preferred gender pronouns; applying self- identification options for LGBTQ+ employees; requiring vendors to follow the firm’s anti-LGBTQ+ discrimination guidelines; and partnering with our People Function in order to actively recruit members of the LGBTQ+ community in roles throughout the Americas.
