Cushman & Wakefield has been recognised as Bronze Employer in the Australian Workplace Equality Index (AWEI). The AWEI drives best practice in Australia and sets a comparative benchmark for Australian employers across all sectors, and we’re so pleased to be formally recongised amongst Australia’s leading employers for our LGBTQIA+ practices.
The AWEI stands as the definitive national benchmark on LGBTQI+ workplace inclusion and comprises the largest and only national employee survey designed to gauge the overall impact of inclusion initiatives on organisational culture as well as identifying and non-identifying employees. The Index drives best practice in Australia and sets a comparative benchmark for Australian employers across all sectors. Read more about it here.
Lucy Basten, Head of Legal Australia and New Zealand, and Executive Sponsor of the Cushman & Wakefield UNITY ANZ Chapter shares, “We are thrilled that the continuous review and improvement of LGBTQIA+ inclusion activities and policies across many business functions, championed by our tenacious UNITY team, has culminated in our best result to date”
“It is so pleasing to see the UNITY ANZ team recongised for their rigorous efforts to complete the AWEI submission, and we’re pleased to be aligned with some of Australia’s leading organisations around LGBTQIA+ inclusion”.
The ANZ UNITY Chapter plays a critical role in shaping the regional and global vision of the UNITY Employee Resource Group (ERG). With this award from Pride in Diversity, Cushman & Wakefield is now formally recongised as an employer of choice for LGBTQIA+ employees and has established a firm foundation to expand our inclusion activities in all of our offices.
We look forward to continuing to share Cushman & Wakefield’s ongoing activities around and commitment to LGBTQIA+ inclusion.
