VP, Partner to Empower
"Partner to Empower is just the first step in Brookfield Properties’ pursuit to break down barriers and make our malls more diverse. We’ve been inspired, not only by the stories businesses have shared with us, but by the overwhelming support of the community and their contributions to the program. Together, we’re changing the retail landscape and I can’t wait to see what the future of this program holds."
Michelle acts as the Vice President of Partner to Empower. Her proudest professional achievement was being asked by senior leadership to develop and implement Brookfield Properties’ Partner to Empower program, which brings diversity to our shopping centers to better reflect the local communities they serve and grow Black-owned businesses in our physical spaces.
