18 Jan, 2006, Dallas, TX
Global Executive Partnership Supports
Cushman & Wakefield (C&W), the world's largest privately held commercial real estate services firm, today provided a significant contribution to CREW Foundation, the philanthropic arm of CREW Network (Commercial Real Estate Women), as part of its Global Executive partnership with CREW Careers, a participatory classroom program aimed at educating teenage girls about commercial real estate. Elizabeth Trocchio, executive managing director of Cushman & Wakefield of Texas, Inc., presented a check for $100,000 from C&W's world headquarters at a CREW luncheon held at the Park City Club on Sherry Lane in Dallas.
"Cushman & Wakefield takes seriously its commitment to diversity," said Ms. Trocchio, who is also a member of the company's global diversity council. "As the top provider for commercial real estate services across the globe, C&W knows first hand the importance women and minorities add to the foundation of our values and to the expectations of our clients. It is up to the women in our firm today to clear a path for the women of tomorrow. CREW Careers gives us that opportunity - the opportunity to give back, the opportunity to make a difference in the future of young women and in the future of our industry."
CREW Careers will be presented to local girl's groups, such as Girls, Inc. and Girl Scouts, in twenty cities throughout the nation during March and April. All twenty markets, including Dallas, have a C&W presence. The program will use local commercial real estate projects to illustrate the range of skills needed to develop raw land into a successfully leased property. Participants will hear from businesswomen involved with these projects to raise awareness of the opportunities for females within the industry.
