SPOTLIGHT ON DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
James Patterson, Chief Executive of Cushman & Wakefield in Australia & New Zealand is building a culture that is gaining a reputation not only in the local market, but globally. He is a passionate advocate for diversity & inclusion. We sat down with James to discuss his plans for creating an inclusive culture.
Describe the cultural tone you want to set for Cushman & Wakefield in Australia & New Zealand? We are building a culture that is inclusive, diverse, and collaborative. Whilst a lot of organisations would say the same, there is an authenticity about the approach to inclusion in our culture and our workplace. We want to have a strategy around diversity, but take it to a deeper level around inclusion. One of the phrases that I reference a lot is “diversity is being invited to the party, inclusion is being asked to dance.” Inclusion means that everyone is able to connect and engage, it is more than just presence, it means equal participation. I want to create a place where everyone has a sense of belonging. One team, one culture, where people feel supported, included, and encouraged to contribute to the success of the business. I had our culture described to me as having a ‘human heart’ and I truly believe this. We have a business responsibility to our clients, our stakeholders, and our people but I see it as more than that, we have an emotional responsibility as well to our community. I believe that this culture will set us apart within our competitive set. Our industry has not necessarily grown up with the best track record around diversity and inclusion. Great gains are being made by many companies, but I am very proud that we are leading the way in many instances in Australia and New Zealand.
Where did this passion for inclusion come from?
James Patterson Chief Executive Australia & New Zealand
Inclusion was instilled in me at a very young age by my parents. I grew up in Dubbo, a country town in New South Wales, where there was a cultural divide between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. I saw firsthand the consequences of not having an inclusive community. However, through my school and sport in Dubbo, some of my best friends were Indigenous kids – and as a child I didn’t really understand the divide, but as I grew older it became apparent and it’s something I want to change! I have carried that philosophy with me through my business and sporting career. I have three boys, Max (18), Hugo (17), and Oscar (13), whom my wife Libby and I have brought up to follow a philosophy of inclusion. I think that is one of the most important roles we can play as parents. I am currently the Acting Chairman of Souths Care board and I have been a board member for over five years. The Souths Cares program is an initiative of the South Sydney Rabbitoh’s which was established to support local disadvantaged and marginalised youth and their families in South Sydney. We work with the Indigenous community of South Sydney through the delivery of capacity building programs addressing education, How are you advocating for diversity & inclusion in your personal life?

normal daily life. And this doesn’t even touch those who suffer exclusion based on race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, and political views. The opportunity of all of us coming together is only one of infinite possibility. Ultimately, a sense of belonging creates a healthier and more successful employee experience. Research shows diversity is needed for teams to be their most productive, whether it be in age, religion, ethnicity, ability or disability, sexual orientation, heritage, socioeconomic, geographic, or life experiences. The more people I meet through our activities around inclusion, the more I am inspired to do more. It resonates with everyone that I talk to from our people, to clients, suppliers and the broader community. For example, as part of our Access & Inclusion sponsorship of Vivid Sydney last year we met Digby Webster and RUCKUS, which is a Sydney based disability led contemporary performance ensemble. RUCKUS performed at our signature client event to mark the centenary of Cushman & Wakefield and we have subsequently commissioned Digby Webster to develop an artwork for our Diversity & Inclusion branding and held an exhibition of his works that were purchase by clients and our own staff. It has opened up such a wonderful collaboration between our business and Digby, who I am sure will be world-famous very soon.
James with members of RUCKUS
training, health, and employment needs. This role is very rewarding for me as I can, through my commercial network, help make a difference. This is a real passion of mine as I have been an active member and supporter of the South Sydney Rabbitohs all my life. As part of ensuring my children have a strong sense of inclusion, our family is very proud to be part of the Scots College Indigenous mentoring program, probably the best run program in Australia with more than 24 Indigenous boys now at the school. We mentor Galveston Gannembarr who is from a remote Indigenous community, Gapaweak, in the Northern Territory. His family very rarely travels to Sydney so Galveston is at our house most weekends and is very much part of our family. Libby and I go to all his parent-teacher interviews, weekend sport, school achievements, and we have also visited his family in the Northern Territory, which was a real “eye opener” for my youngest son Oscar.
I am also a mentor to a number of elite sportsmen and women. Many sporting stars face challenges building a long-term pathway once their sporting career has finished. I help them open doors in the business community in Australia, so they can build the second exciting phase of their career. Why do you believe so passionately about diversity & inclusion? What is the cost to society of excluding people? Most of us taken inclusion for granted. But sadly there are many different community groups that experience exclusion and social isolation based on parameters out of their control. Take for instance the elderly, the less mobile, those with hearing impairment, visual impairment, mental health conditions, intellectual disability, the economically disadvantaged, those on the autism spectrum and children with disability. All of these groups are excluded from what most of us would consider

SPOTLIGHT ON DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
This is the second year we are the Access & Inclusion Partner for Vivid Sydney. We are excited to play a small part in helping break the barriers of social exclusion by making Vivid Sydney 2018 a more inclusive event. This year Cushman & Wakefield is building a unique, inclusive play experience during the festival - a place where children no matter what their level of ability can experience the magic of Vivid Sydney. The experience will be created based on inclusive design principles that enable not only access but participation for all children. I am so excited to reveal this to the general public, our clients and our staff.
our people - we are launching an Indigenous employment strategy, an Indigenous procurement policy, have set gender diversity targets for the business of 40% female representation at the executive level and senior manager level by 2020 and now have five employees through our Job Support partnership, which places adults with mild intellectual disability into the workplace. Jacquie, Ben, Alex, Eddie and Michael (who we have employed through Job Support) are very much part of our Cushman & Wakefield team and culture. However, I am under no illusions that I can create this culture on my own or just with my leadership team. You can’t just flick a switch. We need every single person in the business engaged around inclusion. There are grass roots initiatives that are popping up spontaneously across the business all the time and that is really exciting for me and the team in Australia and New Zealand.
James with Digby Webster
Our diversity & inclusion committee was born out of the commitment of a number of our staff to having an employee network and has since grown to include more than 35 participants. Our first LBGTI+ committee has started in Melbourne out of the desire of a handful of passionate employees and is growing quickly. I think we have a responsibility as an industry to improve the diversity and inclusion agenda within the real estate sector. I am part of the Property Male Champions of Change and I sit with a number of my peers on the ‘Managers Championing Change – Cascading Our Commitment’ working group. Essentially our objective is to create a culture in all property organisations where leadership on gender equality is a behavioural norm, just like safety and sustainability. I want all Cushman & Wakefield managers to personally lead on gender equality and be accountable for delivering results and progressing gender equality. Together we can make inclusion a reality.
What steps are you taking to create this inclusive and diverse culture?
I passionately believe in an inclusive culture, as do my leadership team and a number of them have joined the business for that very reason. We have a range of programs in place for
