International Women’s Day 2021

Cushman & Wakefield Atlantic is thrilled to support International Women’s Day (IWD) on Monday, March 8th. IWD celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women around the world while striving to accelerate gender equality. Each year, this day gives special focus to gender parity by challenging stereotypes, fighting bias, broadening perceptions, improving circumstances, and celebrating women’s achievements.

This year’s theme is #ChooseToChallenge, encouraging a bold approach to tackling challenges faced by women and highlighting the powerful changes brought forth from those challenges.

We are fortunate for those in our firm who #ChooseToChallenge. Our team is elevated daily by these dynamic and inspiring women.
