Inclusion & Belonging

CBL has long valued an inclusive and welcoming environment for our team members and the communities we serve. We are committed to a workplace free from discrimination and harassment, and we value the diverse perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences that we derive from our team, our retailers, and our customers. 

In 2021, we launched CBL Community and partnered with Hinton & Company to serve as our chief inclusion partner and to broaden our inclusion efforts. Hinton & Company has completed an organizational assessment, including an inaugural inclusion survey netting an 85% response rate that generated positive reflections on the organization and areas for improvement. This information will help inform the formation of our overall strategic roadmap for 2022 and beyond.

Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging

The goal of CBL Community is to advance inclusion by:

  • Offering development opportunities for CBL employees to learn how to be consciously inclusive.
  • Identifying strategic partnerships that can help diversify the talent pipeline in commercial real estate.
  • Partnering with like-minded organizations seeking to make an impact through inclusion.
  • Enhancing representation of historically underrepresented groups on our marketing efforts and our supply chain.

2022 Goals

  • Sign the Pledge for CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™
  • Implement a DEI strategy and roadmap with the help of our inclusion partner, Hinton & Company
  • Implement unconscious bias training
