AECOM recognizes the important role small businesses play in our economy and believes in contributing to the communities in which we work.
We believe that small and diverse businesses bring innovation and expertise that assist AECOM in supporting our customers and their missions. AECOM’s strong commitment to supplier diversity runs through the entire firm and is driven by our Supplier Diversity Commitment Statement signed by our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Michael S. Burke. To learn more about the work we do and what we seek from our suppliers, please visit the Integrated Services section of our website.
AECOM continuously seeks to identify new small and diverse firms to support our work across our markets. To facilitate the introduction of new small and diverse suppliers, AECOM engages in a robust outreach program to identify qualified and ethical firms. In addition to hosting outreach events, we take part in client and industry events that provide an opportunity for small and diverse firms to network and market their products and services to us. To see a sampling of our outreach events for this year and to learn more about the events we will be attending, please visit our Outreach Calendar or contact one of our Supplier Diversity Staff.
Our reputation as an industry leader in the support of small and diverse firms can be seen in our participation in mentor-protégé and through the awards and commendations AECOM has received from governmental agencies and regional minority councils. AECOM has a long history of mentoring small and diverse firms and has received numerous awards for our efforts in the area of mentor-protégé.
