LGBTQ+/ALLYSHIP AT CUSHMAN & WAKEFIELD
We are reminded every day that diversity is not just championed at Cushman & Wakefield, it’s expected. We actively work to attract, develop and empower a deep pool of talent, and in doing so create a space where everyone feels valued, respected and inspired to play a role in moving our company forward. Inclusion is a business philosophy that is embedded in everything we do.

WHY BUSINESSES (AND YOU) SHOULD CARE
When we work together, we affect great change. It is our goal at Cushman & Wakefield to lead the industry in being the employer of choice for LGBTQ+ individuals. This means recruiting and hiring people with diverse backgrounds and perspectives.
Cushman & Wakefield is committed to ensuring employees are treated fairly and equitably. The Cushman & Wakefield Global Anti-Harassment and Anti-Discrimination Policy External Link prohibits any discrimination or harassment on the basis of gender, gender identity or expression or sexual orientation.
Cushman & Wakefield's Global Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Vision
Through a focus on talent, culture and supportive processes, Cushman & Wakefield becomes experienced internally and known externally as diverse, respectful and inclusive—a place where people want to work. Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGS) are critical to achieving this goal and foster diverse and inclusive workplaces aligned with our organization’s values, objectives and business practices.
