CBL has long valued an inclusive and welcoming environment for our employees and the communities we serve across the country. We celebrate and honor the diverse perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences that we derive from our team, our retailers, and our customers. In 2021, CBL introduced CBL Community, an internal and external initiative, to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to inclusion, belonging, equity, and diversity.
CBL is committed to building an inclusive and welcoming environment for its employees and the communities it serves throughout the country. As we prioritize inclusion at CBL, our focus is on two things: results and values. To make our vision a reality, we introduced CBL Community—a group of dedicated employees who share a passion for inclusion, belonging, equity, and diversity.
As CBL's Chief Inclusion Partner, it has been amazing to see CBL taking steps to create an inclusive experience for all and to witness team members at every level of the organization helping build a culture where individuals can be their best selves. CBL recognizes that to create a future we all want to be a part of, we must do the necessary work to make CBL and its properties even more inclusive and welcoming places for all.
At CBL, we recognize and embrace the critical impacts of unlocking the potential within a diverse team by achieving a true sense of inclusion and belonging. Together, we mindfully and intentionally pursue this never-ending quest as we perpetuate a good work environment where we strive to ensure that all team members feel respected, accepted, supported, valued, and appreciated. The outcomes we enjoy as a result serve us well as drivers of engagement, innovation, collaboration, retention, and productivity.
