Diversity & Inclusion

Woman explaining the plan to office team - Gannett Fleming.

At Gannett Fleming, we recognize our collective success depends on the diversity of perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences of our employees. Championed by Bob Scaer, PE, Gannett Fleming chairman and CEO, our Diversity & Inclusion Steering Committee is responsible for developing and implementing strategies, best practices, and policies to ensure all employees’ contributions are respected and their voices heard. Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) have been instrumental in advancing our efforts around inclusion, giving a voice to all employees across the firm and fostering an inclusive environment where everyone feels empowered to share their ideas. The formation of a variety of ERGs have enabled us to create a culture that encourages engagement, mentorship, and connection of women, young professionals, and military veterans.

Steering Committee


Gannett Fleming strives to build and nurture a culture of belonging, where diversity and inclusion is not an initiative but a part of our company DNA.
