In an industry historically dominated by men, Urban Land Institute highlighted an architecture firm focused on an inclusiveculture. Gensler, the world’s largest design firm, prefers a co-leadership model – with many offices led by one male and onefemale, finding complementary strengths offer better results.
While the firm is known for promoting women to senior-level leadership, it encourages all aspects of diversity in itsdevelopment program. Gensler’s approach welcomes top performers, resulting in promoting a significant number of women.
As the commercial real estate industry increasingly diversifies, Gensler’s example of developing leaders and collaboration is tobe commended.
