Diversity and Inclusion

A Culture of Inclusion  

We’re committed to being a company where all our people can maximize their full potential and seek the career opportunities they desire, and we know this only happens when our employees, contractors and other stakeholders feel valued for their diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. We welcome new ideas, invest in our people, and work to foster a collaborative, inclusive team environment.

Our Diversity and Inclusion Office leads our Diversity Strategy, which is built on three pillars: Building Awareness, Increasing Representation and Ensuring Success.

Building Awareness: As part of fostering an inclusive and collaborative work environment and to help our people better understand and appreciate each other’s similarities and differences, we regularly host Diversity and Inclusion workshops and employee Diversity and Inclusion panels. We also conduct community outreach and participate community-led diversity celebrations and educational events.

Increasing Representation: We actively work to increase the representation of women, minorities and military members in our workforce through targeted external recruitment efforts, military recruitment activities, and minority initiatives on college and university campuses.  

Ensuring Success: We know that lasting progress requires ongoing reinforcement and active engagement from our leaders. Our executives invest time in mentoring employees, and we take steps to ensure our career development programs and activities have participation from across the company. We also support several Employee Networks focused on key populations – including females, LGBTQ, veterans and ethnicity – which have grown to significant membership.
