Newsweek Greatest Workplaces for Diversity Award

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., April 19 2023 /3BL Media/ — Black & Veatch, a global leader in critical infrastructure solutions, today announced that Newsweek has named it as one of “America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity” in 2023.

The award results from the publication’s analysis of what it identified as the top 1,000 companies that both celebrate diversity and have policies that cultivate inclusive workplaces. Black & Veatch’s recognition, in part, was attributed to its high levels of employee satisfaction among women, LGBTQ+ individuals and other historically marginalized groups.

“Our work in DEI is rooted in the belief that every employee-owner brings a valuable perspective to Black & Veatch, which enables a variety of solutions to tackle complex problems,” said Silas Dulan, Black & Veatch’s new associate vice president and global director of diversity, equity & inclusion. “We strive to cultivate a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace where all professionals thrive. This recognition from Newsweek really emphasizes the value and care we place on diversity and proves that we are making strides in the right direction.”

The company’s commitment to diversity and inclusion in management, as well as its reporting on diversity and sustainability, also contributed to the recognition.

“Receiving this award brings gratification as we continue to strengthen our inclusive, equitable and collaborative culture where we respect each other's differences and as a result, enhance the ways we work together,” said Mario Azar, Black & Veatch chairman and CEO.
