Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity & Inclusion

The OneHines initiative supports an inclusive culture in which all Hines employees feel valued and have equal opportunity to achieve their maximum potential. With offices in 20 countries around the world and a workforce of more than 3,750 professionals, we believe that diverse skills and viewpoints make us stronger and better able to serve our investors, partners, clients and communities.

Hines is driven by a commitment to excellence, integrity and innovation. Employees are essential to our success, and we are dedicated to attracting, developing and promoting a talented, diverse and multicultural workforce. We strive to provide an inclusive environment where differences are valued, embraced and celebrated, and where everyone can reach their full potential. Diverse perspectives advance new ideas and foster our entrepreneurial culture, creating successful outcomes for our firm as well as our partners, clients, investors and employees.

OneHines is a personal focus of mine. Our firm strongly values diverse team members and viewpoints and believes a culture of inclusivity enables us to adapt quickly to shifting market needs and strategic opportunities.

Diversity Road Map

Hines has established a diversity leadership committee to help oversee the firm's priorities and set objectives. The following actions support these goals.

  1. Set the intention and make it known With internal and external communications, participation in industry forums, and through public reports such as Hines' annual Sustainability Report, Hines values and intends to increase diversity in its workforce and leadership.

  2. Ask questions and be open to new ideas “Where should we recruit?” “How do we better connect our employees?” These are examples of powerful questions Hines can use to strengthen the role of diverse ideas and inclusion in decision-making.

  3. Expand policies that support inclusion Hines continues to explore where shifts in policies—parental leave, flexible work schedules and other practices—can unlock greater potential for inclusion, productivity and career advancement.

  4. Build diverse leadership teams Recruiting, mentorship and career development opportunities are among the ways Hines will be able to foster diverse, experienced teams serving in a broader range of roles and functions.

  5. Evaluate actions and progress Hines is examining the criteria and metrics of leading diversity indexes. These frameworks, as well as other tools, allow the firm to evaluate policies, measure performance and report progress.

  6. Advance the conversation By supporting diversity and inclusion initiatives and providing channels for conversations, Hines can help ensure all voices are heard.
