COMMUNITY

To make the greatest positive impact on the world around us, Gensler is organized as a single cohesive community that’s connected across the globe, working with shared values and shared purpose. This year, we reshaped our network as One Community that’s able to bring Gensler’s unique strengths to the marketplace and drive transformation for our clients anywhere in the world. By creating a dynamic network of leaders who can accelerate strategy, simplify communication, and ensure connectivity, there’s no limit to what we can accomplish.

Fueled by insights from the Gensler Research Institute, we are committed to unlocking new solutions and strategies that will define the future of design. We invite you to use these insights as a platform for thinking about what’s next.
