At Avison Young, we’ve always put people at the heart of what we do. This includes implementing deliberate strategies that advance underrepresented communities in commercial real estate careers.
In the last few years, we’ve increased the diversity at our board, leadership and Principal levels. Avison Young stands out for our commitment to empowering women. In addition to increasing the number of women on our board and in our leadership ranks, our internal Women’s Network of more than 300 members come together for networking and learning, and advise the business on strategies for promoting access, opportunity and inclusion in our industry.
Our global D&I steering committee shapes our strategy to continue to increase industry access for people of color and diverse backgrounds and accelerating initiatives led by our employee resource groups, including our Women’s Network, Black Professionals and LGBTQ+ groups. In addition to leading global initiatives, the steering committee’s work examines our policies and practices, creating accountability for results and communicating progress to our executive leadership, our clients and our communities.
