CBRE holds its second annual Diversity Week
Following the success of its inaugural Diversity Week in 2016, CBRE is holding its second annual event which will run from 4-8 September 2017. The week of daily interactive workshops and keynote speakers will be hosted across offices nationwide with the aim of raising awareness, promoting respect and celebrating diversity and inclusion for all in the workplace.
CBRE continues to champion inclusion to promote a working environment that can allow every individual to perform to their highest potential. The daily events will provide an opportunity for provocative discussion regarding the positive impact that having diversity as a core business value can have within the company and throughout the industry.
David Hitchcock, Executive Director and Head of Building Consultancy at CBRE and Chair of CBRE’s Diversity Steering Group: "Last year we launched our first ever Diversity Week, which received positive feedback across the board. We now look forward to holding this event again as a further opportunity to open up our workplace and identify future actions that will aid us in our mission to ingrain an inclusive atmosphere into every aspect of our business.
We recognize that to build a productive work environment, it must first be one where every employee feels comfortable and accepted. We hope this year’s Diversity Week will be another informative and stimulating experience as we continue to celebrate our differences.”
