CBRE Community Impact Initiative
“That’s why we are fervently committed to playing a larger role in helping to address urgent global issues like slowing the planet’s warming and pressing local issues like ensuring that Dallas’s most disadvantaged young people are given every opportunity to forge healthy, happy and productive lives,” said Bob Sulentic, president and chief executive officer. “Nationally, CBRE’s success – today and in the future – depends on drawing from the widest possible talent pool, so we have a vested interest in supporting programs across the country that educate young women and people of color and prepare them for flourishing careers in commercial real estate.”
