The Associated Pennsylvania Constructors (APC), the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, and The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission presented the Total Quality Initiative (TQI) Diversity Excellence Award to Gannett Fleming during the APC 2019 TQI Awards Banquet on April 4.
The APC TQI Diversity Awards recognize companies whose efforts focus on the value of diversity and inclusion (D&I) in the transportation industry and promote the development of a diverse and all-inclusive workforce.
At Gannett Fleming, firmwide D&I is at the heart of our corporate principles. Cognizant of engineering stereotypes, we strive to bring a range of perspectives to the table. Gannett Fleming understands that D&I at all levels of our workforce makes us stronger, smarter, and more creative. In tandem with Gannett Fleming’s D&I program, the firm has three growing employee resource groups that bring together diverse team members from all backgrounds:
- Connected Women at Gannett Fleming™
- Future Generations of Gannett Fleming
- Military Veterans at Gannett Fleming.
Supported by our strategic action plan and led by the D&I Steering Committee, Gannett Fleming has rolled out D&I education to project managers and project principals. The firm also launched two D&I scholarships and increased recruiting at schools that graduate a high number of minority students.
