JLL to be launch sponsor for ICSC European diversity initiative

The International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) has agreed with global commercial real estate advisor JLL to be the launch sponsor for their European diversity initiative.

JLL will support and assist ICSC as they expand their current “Women in Retail Real Estate” programme to be a “best in class” diversity initiative supporting individuals and groups across the European retail property industry. 

“The ICSC Women in Retail Real Estate project has made excellent progress this year, including an outstanding event during the ICSC European Conference in Istanbul and events in Cannes and Milan. We want to build on this success in 2015 by broadening our diversity efforts through implementing a wider, more fully inclusive programme. Together with JLL, we will hold workshops and consult with our other European partners and members to ensure we better represent the full spectrum of diversity across the European shopping centre and retail real estate industry,” said Mike Morrissey, ICSC Executive Vice-President.

“Industries succeed when they support and develop the full pool of available talent. As an established ICSC European partner, JLL is proud to be ICSC’s first-ever European diversity sponsor and we look forward to working with the industry to leverage the innovative edge that diverse teams can bring,” said Victoria Gould, Director JLL TAGI..

The ICSC 2015 diversity programme will include a series of events open to ICSC members, further details will be published on the ICSC website:
