Diversity hones our competitive edge and contributes to our company's strength. ARCADIS actively promotes inclusiveness across the workplace, creating an environment where each individual has equal the opportunity to achieve his or her full potential, where human differences are valued, and where employees feel respected and empowered in the decisions that affect them. A diverse and skilled workforce is essential to our success.
A commitment to diversity
College recruiting. Our college recruiting program focuses on increasing the presence of trained minority and female engineers and scientists in our profession. To achieve our high diversity goals, we visit Historically Black Colleges and Universities and seek to recruit the very best.
Women’s network. We foster a high performing and inclusive workforce that provides career equality, professional development and mentoring opportunities for career advancement. Our Women’s Network provides members with a collaborative, open environment to share information, resources, ideas and experiences for improving work-life balance.
Partnerships. Our partnerships with programs such as the National Action Council for Minority Engineers (NACME), the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) and the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) promote minority and women's advancement. ARCADIS is a Board Member of NACME. Furthering our commitment, Doug Owen, ARCADIS Vice President and Chief Technical Officer (Water), serves as Chair of NACME’s Board of Directors Governance Committee.
