When we feel free to be ourselves, we thrive.
Our commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion enables us to better anticipate our clients’ needs, understand the challenges facing the communities we serve, drive innovation that propels our industry forward, and realize our purpose of delivering a better world.
To empower those in our industry to thrive, we’re focused on four key areas to drive greater equity, diversity, and inclusion within AECOM and beyond.
To tackle the world’s most complex challenges, we attract, hire, and develop talented people of all backgrounds, and ensure inclusivity and fairness in our sourcing, interview, and hiring processes. Through our partnerships with nonprofit organizations and universities, we offer robust internships, graduate development programs, and volunteer opportunities that help give underserved populations access to STEAM education.
To help every employee feel valued and included, we’re creating an inclusive workplace through community-building, training, and family-friendly benefit policies. We conduct regular employee surveys and “real talk” discussions to understand our employees’ experiences and provide a forum for deeper understanding and empathy. Our employee resource groups create a sense of belonging and lead community outreach, and strategic mentorships promote ongoing dialogue and heightened awareness.
Our Blueprint for a Better World platform reflects our responsibility to champion equity, diversity, and inclusion in our communities through pro-bono work, volunteerism, philanthropy, and strategic partnerships with global nonprofit organizations like Engineers Without Borders and Water for People. We deepen our engagement with communities through our commitment to supplier diversity, providing leadership to ensure that diverse-owned businesses are supported and successful.
Fostering equity, diversity and inclusion can’t be done in a silo. By cultivating a workforce that more closely represents our clients and the communities we serve, we are able to better anticipate and respond to their needs. Further, we prioritize the social impact and benefits of equity, diversity, and inclusion, factoring in these considerations into every project we pursue and the innovative solutions we deliver.
RAYPLE IS A PLACE WITH OPPORTUNITIES FOR EVERYONE.
