EQ Office has launched a social responsibility program, EQ Impact, aimed at regenerating urban spaces, preserving local culture, and driving humanity into the workplace. The Chicago-based office landlord has formed a nationwide partnership with YouthBuild USA that will expand job skills training, offer hands-on mentoring, and provide internships to opportunity youth in local communities who want a career in real estate or construction-related fields.
"As an owner and operator of buildings that are part of our cities across the country, at EQ Office we really want to humanize work and our workplaces - and this is not just the physical spaces, but largely the neighborhoods that surround us," said Lisa Picard, CEO and president of EQ Office.
She added, “This is an evolving effort for me and all our people at EQ, as we want this to commence our reporting of progress each year."
