At Cushman & Wakefield, we value difference and a culture where everyone belongs and is treated equally. We would like to acknowledge and thank our women colleagues, who make an incredible impact every day—their leadership, skills and acumen help our firm win new clients, attract top talent and transform the industry and our communities.

International Women's Day (IWD) unifies women around the world in celebrating social, economic, cultural and political achievements—and the day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality. All of us together, can help create gender parity by challenging stereotypes, fighting bias, broadening perceptions, improving situations and celebrating women’s achievements.

Let’s build a gender-equal world.

Equality is not only a women’s issue, it’s a business issue. In honor of IWD on March 8, and in recognition of Women’s History Month (celebrated in some countries in March), Cushman & Wakefield and C&W Services asked our professionals to reflect on this year’s IWD theme #EachforEqual—including what it means to them and how will they are forging a more gender equal world.
