DIVERSITY & Inclusion

We believe a wide mix of cultures and backgrounds gives our teams a healthier perspective and an ability to find better solutions for our clients. It makes Black & Veatch an engaging and inspiring place to work, and a place where you can maximize your potential.

Diversity & Inclusion

Our professionals come from different backgrounds, each bringing their unique experiences to projects around the world.

Many of our professionals have worked on projects across different countries, a result of their desire for career development and of the company’s desire to have a highly mobile, global workforce. We want to be able to deploy our professionals anywhere that our clients need us.

Black & Veatch supports several Employee Resource Groups (ERG). ERGs promote cultural awareness and engagement through opportunities for career development, social support, mentoring, community participation and more.
