Hispanic Heritage Month Article

What aspects of your culture have served as a unique asset to you in your professional success?

Alex DiazAs a Cuban-American whose family fled Cuba and was forced to leave everything behind, it’s important to me to be mindful and always appreciative of the opportunities I’ve been afforded by their sacrifice.

Q: Who is a notable Latino figure inspiring to you, and why?

My mother. Her persistence and ability to handle adversity throughout her life is an inspiration to me.

Q: How have you seen diversity as a valuable asset in our business?

Our industry is certainly behind from a diversity perspective, but it’s great to see all the focus and attention Cushman & Wakefield places on this. Employee Resource Groups can be very effective. When entering a new business pursuit, the more diverse the team, the better. We should look like our clients.

Q: What are ways in which you give or pay it forward in the Latino community?

I donate to the Latino student association at my undergraduate alma mater, Ohio State.
