One of the things I love about the businesses that The Cordish Companies built is that they're inclusive. They hire people from that city. Their workforce looks like that city and they promote people to the very top, of all colors. They do business with minority contractors, they hire diverse workforces with many people from the surrounding neighborhoods.

INVOLVED IN OUR LOCAL COMMUNITIES

The planning and operation of our urban projects involve significant community outreach and input from key civic stakeholders and the public sector. This involves a variety of formal partnerships with local governments and community advisory groups to ensure local hiring and business participation. Our projects serve as central community gathering places for people to celebrate, play, and host community and charitable events throughout the year.

Community Events & Outreach

Each of our urban districts serves as a community meeting place, hosting community events and civic groups on a free and continual basis.
