Recognizing 50 Years of Progress and Challenge

Recognizing 50 Years of Progress and Challenge

June 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots—three days of demonstrations in Greenwich Village, New York City, and a major turning point in the modern gay rights movement. In recognition of half a century’s progress and challenges, NYC is hosting a World Pride celebration during the month of June.

Cushman & Wakefield is recognizing this important moment in history too—in honor of Pride Month 2019, we crafted a timeline of significant gay rights milestones from the last 50 years in North America. The interactive timeline also includes information on Cushman & Wakefield’s involvement, such as the launch of UNITY, our Employee Resource Group for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning + Allies (LGBTQ+) colleagues. In addition, we are proud to have recently received the 2019 Corporate Equality Index distinction of Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality, earning a 100% score by meeting all criteria set forth by Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s benchmarking tool.

We work hard to develop and empower a culture that unleashes what’s possible in every person we hire. Our people are at the center of everything we do and we are working hard to ensure we are the industry employer of choice for LGBTQ+ employees. Meet a few of our people below as they share their thoughts in recognition of Pride Month.

I comment on topics related to real estate and the economy all the time. But while not always easy, those flow a bit better than a topic such as this. I imagine it’s because this subject is more personal, and that wherever one fits on the spectrum within the LGBTQIA community—or in the straight world—we would have a unique story to tell.
