Cushman & Wakefield Celebrates Black History Month

Salute to Black History Month

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.

Cushman & Wakefield salutes Black/African American predecessors, colleagues, friends and family for their central role in our country’s past, present and future.


BUILD Paving the Way
As we celebrate and honor the significance of Black History Month, we also acknowledge the tumultuousness within the Black community following the tragic events over the past year. The wound of racial divide was exposed, however, it inspired overdue conversations across platforms and change within organizations surrounding diversity, equity and inclusion. Cushman & Wakefield stands with the Black community and our Employee Resource Group, BUILD, who in 2021 continues to turn up the volume in the advancement of Black employees within Cushman & Wakefield.
