Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2020 | Cushman & Wakefield
Marketplace We will harness DEI to deliver better results for clients, enforce greater inclusion of diverse businesses and bolster our brand. We are committed to contracting with and engaging diverse suppliers across our global operations to meet our needs and those of our clients. We embrace diversity not only through workforce initiatives, but also through longstanding alliances to address industry-wide supplier diversity initiatives. Examples include our nearly 20-year strategic partnership with JRT Realty Group Inc., a woman-owned, full-service commercial real estate services firm, and our more than 25-year alliance with ARVO Realty Advisors, a minority-owned, full-service commercial real estate firm. In 2020, our APAC teams increased expenditures with Indigenous-owned businesses across Australia, supporting delivery of services to clients and reopening protocols in our own offices while contributing to local employment and the prosperity of the Indigenous community. See the Supply Chain Management section of this report for more information on our Supplier Diversity Program. We also aim to enhance our services and capabilities by working with minority-owned businesses. C&W Services’ joint venture with Alutiiq Logistics & Maintenance Services, LLC, a certified small Alaska Native-owned business, provides janitorial, maintenance, cleaning, landscaping and office services to clients across North America. For more examples of how we’re making an impact in the marketplace and in our communities, see the Community Engagement section of this report.
