Global real estate provider, CBRE, won the Corporate Award at the Women of the Future Awards, on Wednesday 15th November at a ceremony held at the London Hilton on Park Lane.

CBRE, which was shortlisted for the prestigious accolade alongside Amazon, General Electric Aviation, Berwin Leighton Paisner and the RICS, was recognised for its pioneering diversity and inclusion strategy, and in particular, the success of the CBRE UK Women’s Network, which was founded in 2005. Over the past 12 years, the CBRE Women’s Network has been at the forefront of promoting women and diversity in the real estate industry and has been influential in helping CBRE attract, recruit and develop the best female talent.

The Women of the Future Awards, which were founded in 2006, were conceived to provide a platform for the pipeline of female talent in the UK and recognise the success and influence of women across a broad spectrum of business sectors. The corporate award was introduced to acknowledge an organisation that is doing the most to support and nurture young women in business and drive social change that will enable young woman to prosper.

Winning this award is a huge accolade and testament to CBRE’s ongoing commitment to inclusion and diversity within our own community and the real estate industry at large. It is fantastic to see the real estate sector raising the bar for corporate brands across the UK and for the industry to be recognised by the wider business community.
