Cushman & Wakefield Celebrates Black History Month

Paving the Way Every Day

This Black History Month, Cushman & Wakefield and C&W Services celebrate Black/African Americans who have made contributions to U.S. history—and paved the way for those today who are doing the same.

We understand that advancement and achievement in professional and community life are accomplished step-by-step, day-by-day, by hard-working, visionary people—including people we are very proud to have here at our firm.
