Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We embrace an open dialogue in our workplace that enables everyone to bring their authentic selves to work.


The More Perspectives We Have the More Dimensions We See

Diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) are more than just values—they're a competitive advantage. By creating a culture where our employees are recognised for their contribution and given a chance to grow, we regularly open ourselves and our business to new opportunities.

With a shared foundation of respect, integrity, service and excellence—values we call RISE—we use our position as a leading global company to positively impact: 

  • Our Culture: Strengthening our inclusive culture so our people are safe, valued and heard.
  • Our Talent: Increasing the diversity of our workforce through ongoing recruitment, training, and retention initiatives.
  • Our Marketplace: Investing in diverse suppliers and increasing our philanthropic activities to impact the community.
DE&I is fundamental to who we are as a global organisation. Our commitment to advancing change for employees and the communities where we live and serve is unwavering.

Our Diverse Development Initiatives

  1. Gender Balance

    Targeted approach to succession, sponsorship, development and mentoring to improve the gender balance in our leadership teams and creating opportunities in areas that traditionally attract fewer women.
  2. Pitch Pledge

    An initiative that aims to improve gender balance in leasing and capital transactions – two of the property industry’s ‘tough spots’ - through finding opportunities to involve women in a meaningful way in all our service engagements.
  3. Strategic Recruitment

    Ensuring bias is removed from our recruitment decisions and diversity of thought is prioritised.
  4. Reconciliation

    We’re passionate about the part we can play in strengthening relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous peoples, for the benefit of all Australians. It’s a core focus for CBRE, and we aim to share our vision of reconciliation with our valued clients, partners, and communities.

  5. Family Friendly Workplace

    Ensuring that parents are supported before, during and after parental leave. Our family friendly policies are reinforced by a Parents Hub which includes a toolkit with resources, tips and tools for both parents and managers and an in-house return to work program. 
  6. Building Equality with the LGBTQI+ Community

    Making meaningful changes within our workplaces to support our LGBTQI+ people and foster an inclusive environment. Our LGBTQI+ focus was recognised in 2021 when CBRE was awarded Silver status in the Australian Workplace Equality Index (AWEI) for the 2nd year running. 
To build a great organisation, you need to build your teams from across the full population of people . . . that includes all of the diverse groups in the population.
