Diversity and Inclusion Awards

Cushman & Wakefield has an important role to play in changing the property services industry. Our aim is to become more inclusive of those who identify within diversity groups.

As part of the Diversity and Inclusion Network, the ‘Opening Doors’ program on the NAB account aims to support organisational objectives and provide equality in income and opportunities for minority groups in society.

As a result of the Opening Doors initiative and the results that followed its implementation across; Disability Employment, Indigenous Traineeships and Gender Equality, NAB awarded Cushman & Wakefield with the Do the right thing Diversity Award for 2016.

Job Support

The Jobsupport program is a job placement service managed by Disability Employment Services, an Australian Government Initiative. Cushman & Wakefield is delighted to be part of the program that provides paid employment to individuals with an intellectual disability.

We currently have three employees through the Job Support program who manage our front of house facilities - Alex Peeters and Eddy Guo in our Sydney office, Jacquie Gavin and Anastasia Tryphonos in our Melbourne office. They are absolutely part of the Cushman & Wakefield family and bring a wonderful energy and contribution to our business.

Cushman & Wakefield Australia was awarded GOLD at the 2017 Annual Real Estate Excellence Awards (AREA's) in Melbourne, Australia. Cushman & Wakefield has been recognised for their efforts in collaborating with Jobsupport to provide opportunities to employees with intellectual impairments. 

In October 2016 Cushman & Wakefield was fortunate to receive an award from Jobsupport at their annual conference for placing their 700th client (Jacqui Gavin). Our ongoing commitment in this area is part of our vision for a skilled workforce in the future.
