For too long, the A/E/C industry has not reflected the communities that we serve. We heard from our current employees that our culture is our greatest strength, but with many groups underrepresented or missing, we know that there is still work to be done.
At LaBella, our motto has always been, “our strength is in our diversity.” For many years, that led us to make investments in adding services, geographies, and clients. Recognizing that our motto holds true for diversity in all facets, we have made a conscious investment to increase the diversity of our workforce. As we’ve begun this important work, we’ve set a course for a holistic approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Like any important undertaking, we’ve given this initiative the resources it requires. Working with an expert consultant in this area, we’re making tangible steps to ensure that LaBella is a force for progress across our industries and communities. These steps are set forth by our Inclusion Council, which works closely with our leadership team on progress and accountability.
