Image of the words diversity and inclusion

Diversity and inclusion is a core pillar for us at Lendlease, and we are committed to being a place for all. In a new interview series, some of our female employees have been sharing what they think about our commitment to diversity. We caught up with:

Nicky Whitbread,

Senior Marketing Manager, Residential

I’M CURRENTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR…

Overseeing the marketing across all residential developments and trying to bring them together in a more consistent manner – the aim is to strengthen the Lendlease brand for the residential development arm of the business.

TO ME, DIVERSITY MEANS…

Having a workplace that embraces people of all different backgrounds, genders, and cultures. It’s important that everyone feels included, and I think we work hard at Lendlease to promote that.

TO ENCOURAGE EQUALITY, THE INDUSTRY CAN…

Start the discussion of equality in schools. There needs to be an education to tell young girls and women that they can work in whichever industry or role they choose. No one should feel constrained by titles or misconceptions of what roles they can do because of their gender. But those discussions need to start at an earlier age than they currently do.

LENDLEASE IS A PLACE FOR ME BECAUSE…

We have incredible sustainability credentials. Our sustainable ethos is at the heart of everything we do day-to-day. It’s nice to work somewhere where we aren’t just focused on building product, but creating inclusive neighborhoods and environments for the future that people can enjoy and want to live in.
