Named one of the Best Places to Work for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Equality in the United States

LOS ANGELES (Nov. 9, 2017) — AECOM, a premier, fully integrated global infrastructure firm, announced today that it has earned a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s 2018 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) and the distinction of “Best Places to Work for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Equality” in the United States. The Corporate Equality Index is the national benchmarking tool on corporate policies and practices pertinent to LGBT employees.

“This year’s perfect rating from HRC reflects our ongoing commitment to promoting a culture of inclusion and diversity, which is key to attracting the brightest minds in our industry and driving our continuing success,” said Michael S. Burke, AECOM’s chairman and chief executive officer. “With more than 87,000 employees in 150 countries, our diverse workforce enables us to better understand our clients and the communities in which we live and work. We’re proud to be an inclusive employer of choice.”

AECOM is dedicated to fostering an environment free of discrimination, harassment and ensuring equal opportunities in all areas of employment, including recruitment, hiring, training and promotion. Diversity and inclusion is embedded in AECOM’s core values and is a key driver of our success. The perfect score puts AECOM among the top-ranked firms within the engineering and construction sector.

“We strive to create an environment where our LGBT employees and allies feel empowered and valued,” said Mary Finch, AECOM’s chief human resources officer. “We realize that this work is never finished and we are determined to continue to ensure a diverse and inclusive workplace for every one of our employees around the world.”

The Human Rights Campaign and Foundation together serve as America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve LGBT equality. By inspiring and engaging individuals and communities, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBT people and realize a world that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all. The CEI criteria reflect leading policies, benefits and practices for the LGBT workforce and their families in the United States. For more information on this year’s CEI report visit:
