Diversity & Inclusion

Throughout our history, we have consistently met or exceeded diversity goals set by our clients. This is evidence of our larger commitment to operating in a socially responsible manner—maintaining a safe workplace that provides equal opportunity for employment, including substantial engagement with certified Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE), Minority-Owned Business Enterprises (MBE) and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (WBE).

Diversity and inclusion is a key element of the ICC vision to provide exceptional construction services while striving continuously to raise the bar for responsible corporate governance and social responsibility. It’s an ongoing priority to bring greater diversity to our workplace and project teams without compromising quality or increasing costs. ICC maintains a strong, long-term commitment to providing equal opportunity for workers and firms in all our contracts. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin in assembling our project teams, always taking a proactive approach that’s consistent with fiscally sound procurement policies and applicable laws. We require all subcontractors to whom we award contracts to establish, communicate and meet their own Equal Employment Opportunity initiatives.

ICC has policies in place to prevent harassment of any employees either because of their placement through affirmative action initiatives or because of their race, religion, gender or national origin. We review practices periodically to ensure that members of various religious and ethnic groups are receiving fair consideration for job opportunities.

  • Determining trade-specific DBE, MBE and WBE goals in our projects based on our knowledge of the subcontractors available to work on each task.
  • Working with our customers and project partners to exceed goals—including “stretch goals”—striving continuously to discover new opportunities to improve the percentage of DBE/MBE/WBE participation.
  • Reaching out to non-DBE/MBE/WBE firms who have a successful track record partnering with diverse and/or local firms to solicit involvement in our projects.
  • Publishing the names of third-tier DBE/MBE/WBE subcontractors and suppliers interested in working with prime subcontractors.
  • Utilizing all traditional methods of bid solicitation, including direct contact via phone or email, Gradebeam, Dodge Report, Reed Bulletin, The Blue Book of Building and Construction, trade associations, and other bid resources to publicly advertise the project opportunity.
