Our mission is to realize the potential of our clients, professionals and partners by building the real estate solutions of the future. From instilling confidence in today’s decisions to re-imagining tomorrow’s spaces, we thrive in complex and ever-changing environments.
We believe enduring success can only be built on a foundation of responsible business practices, and that everyone gains an advantage by adopting the values of RISE (Respect, Integrity, Service and Excellence).
At CBRE, DE&l are more than core values—they’re a competitive advantage. By creating an environment where each individual is valued for who they are, recognized for their contributions and given a chance to grow, we open our business to new perspectives and opportunities.
Across the company, we approach DE&I the same way as every business imperative for CBRE and our clients: with an intentional focus on data, innovation and outcomes. To build a more diverse workforce, we implement several initiatives focused on talent attraction, development and retention. Some key initiatives include:
• Partnering with nonprofit organizations to expand opportunities for commercial real estate career for underrepresented communities in our industry.
• Bringing together senior client-facing women from CBRE and top women executives from our client companies in the Americas through our Power of WE conference.
• Improving gender balance in our leadership with IMPACT!, an 18-month targeted development and mentoring program. This program is a global executive development initiative that identifies, develops, retains, and launches key women leaders into senior and executive leadership roles.
CBRE has three women on our 11-member Board of Directors and two women on our 10-member executive team. In addition, in 2021, CBRE spent $1.2 billion with diverse suppliers as part of our commitment to spend $3 billion with diverse suppliers by the end of 2025.
