Cushman & Wakefield signs Diversity Charter
Global real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield has signed the Diversity Charter, thereby confirming its continued commitment to creating a workplace that fosters a culture of inclusivity based on respect for all people, regardless of their gender, age, ethnic origin or views.
“Diversity, respect, equal opportunities for all and social inclusion are fundamental principles for our organisation. In addition to our global activities we also put our own ideas into action to create equitable growth opportunities for our employees. A key element of our diversity strategy is
increasing the awareness in our employees of specific behaviours that foster an inclusive culture by demonstrating that each of us has real impact on creating an open workplace and ultimately being a responsible partner for our clients,” – says Anna Trochim, Country HR Manager, Cushman &
In Poland, Cushman & Wakefield continues its WIN initiative (Women’s Integrated Network) to promote development opportunities for women and create a culture where gender equality in leadership is a norm. In 2020, the WIN’s program included a series of debates with the firm’s female leaders. In 2021, this initiative is headed by Joanna Sinkiewicz, Partner, Industrial and Logistics Agency, which demonstrates its enormous business significance for Cushman & Wakefield.
Globally, Cushman & Wakefield has appointed a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion team with responsibility for planning and carrying out activities across all of its offices with a view to increasing the awareness and role of diversity, respect, equity and social inclusion. The firm has also implemented a policy that guarantees equal treatment in employment of people of any age, ethnic origin, social status, sexual identity or physical and mental skills.
By signing the Diversity Charter, companies commit to non-discrimination in the workplace and to introducing policies that create and promote diversity, and to engagement of all employees as well as business and social partners in such activities. Companies implementing this tool take action for social cohesion and equality. In Poland, the Diversity Charter is coordinated by the Responsible Business Forum.
