Inclusion & Leadership Network
Fostering a workplace that attracts, develops, retains and elevates diverse talent through an inclusive organizational culture that provides leadership in the global real estate investment management industry.
PGIM Real Estate's ILN is comprised of a global cross-section of professionals with a diverse range of responsibilities, experiences and tenure with the company. They all share the common goal to create an inclusive organizational culture that promotes the career development of diverse talent.
PGIM Real Estate took a leadership position in the real estate industry by establishing a Women's Leadership Network (WLN) in 2013 to address gender diversity. Building on the WLN's success, we formed the ILN in 2017 to expand our focus on diversity across race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, economic and geographic background.
Programming throughout the year addresses professional development, cultural change, talent attraction and retention, and equal access. We host or participate in events with our clients, partners and industry organizations that support the mission.
We believe that diversity of perspective and experience makes us better investment managers, and fully integrating the goals of the ILN into the business strategy will help PGIM Real Estate us achieve our objectives.
We host events for employees globally to generate awareness of the ILN's goals and current initiatives, provide opportunity for group discussions around relevant diversity topics, and promote a more inclusive organizational culture overall. We also host, sponsor or participate in events with our clients, partners and industry organizations that support our mission.
The ILN has developed a series of events in support of career development, including: Lunch and Learns, a speaker series, and seminars/training.
Attracting and retaining top talent is an important component of PGIM Real Estate's goal to be recognized as the real estate employer of choice, and the ILN supports these efforts through: a mentoring program, recruiting, external and internal networking.
