Promoting diversity and inclusion is a company-wide commitment at Brasfield & Gorrie. It is a commitment we take seriously—and one we have embraced since our beginning.
Brasfield & Gorrie’s Diversity Statement
At Brasfield & Gorrie, we work daily to build diversity in our workforce, increase collaboration with minority partners, and promote a culture that embraces new ideas and strengthens communities.
Brasfield & Gorrie provided opportunities for diverse businesses long before goals for inclusion were common because we believe that helping support and develop these firms is critical to the growth and vitality of our communities.
We take specific steps to maximize diverse business participation in our projects, and we have an excellent record of exceeding subcontracting plan goals.
“In an ever-changing business climate, a commitment to diversity and inclusion is simply good business,” said Jeff Stone, Chief Operating Officer of Brasfield & Gorrie. “Such commitment supports our company values that emphasize a rewarding work environment, personal growth opportunities, strength through partnerships, and community stewardship. In the long run, we believe this commitment will make us more competitive, more productive, and more attentive to the needs of our business clients and partners.”
We also partner with diverse businesses in joint venture partnerships on projects that run the gamut from hotels to international airports. In company-initiated and federal mentor-protégé programs, we help diverse businesses gain a foothold in the competitive construction industry by providing technical, management, and financial assistance.
