Inclusion and Diversity

We embrace the diversity of every employee through an inclusive and accountable culture.

At AECOM, inclusion and diversity are embedded in our core values and are key drivers of our success. Our innovation is enhanced by our ability to draw from a wealth of different backgrounds and experiences. And the diversity of our workforce enables us to better understand our clients and the communities in which we live and work.

Diversity expresses itself in many different ways:

  • Age
  • Gender identity
  • Gender expression
  • Race
  • Color
  • National origin
  • Marital status
  • Sexual orientation
  • Sex
  • Religious creed
  • Disability
  • Medical condition
  • Genetic information
  • Military or veteran status
  • Legally protected categories

An inclusive culture is a dynamic, active and intentional environment that increases individual and organizational performance by creating opportunities for all employees to achieve their full potential. We believe in fostering a workplace free from discrimination and harassment and ensuring equal opportunities in all areas of employment. We want to ensure all employment practices are objective and free from bias, are based solely on work criteria and individual merit, and meet the broader company objectives.

We’re proud to have earned a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index and the  distinction as one of the “Best Places to Work for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Equality” for the fifth consecutive year in the United States. The Corporate Equality Index is the national benchmarking tool on corporate policies and practices pertinent to LGBT employees.
