Our leadership and staff work hard to cultivate an open, welcoming workplace where everyone feels the strength and safety to succeed. This means providing equal opportunities to our entire staff based on merit and potential, and working to eliminate biases across our organization.
We deliver on this commitment through our dedicated Workplace Diversity and Inclusion Committee. This team focuses on hiring practices to improve diversity among our workforce and developing our internal culture of inclusion. The results of our efforts are beginning to show — according to the Environmental Financial Consulting Group HR survey, Haley & Aldrich was recently ranked in the top 10% of architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) organizations with respect to gender diversity.
As a company committed to learning, we continually seek new opportunities to grow our diversity and inclusion efforts.
These are a few of our Workplace Diversity and Inclusion Committee’s current areas of focus:
- Scholarship, mentoring, and internship programs for underrepresented students in the STEM education field at community colleges.
- Ongoing training and engagement programs to address implicit or unconscious bias, harassment, and micro-aggressions.
- Diversity-focused recruiting program that connects with underrepresented student groups and professional industry organizations that promote BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) people in STEM.
- Community engagement programs working with communities near our offices to promote STEM education in urban K-12 schools.
At Haley & Aldrich, we value all people. By welcoming and respecting differences, we’re creating a workplace culture where our staff can be their most authentic selves.
