ACEC/MA formed a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force several months ago as part of our local response to the ACEC Strategic Plan. During the week of June 8, 2020, we launched this DEI Resource Page as a place to provide links for tools and documents that may be helpful to you.
Request to Our Members: Our DEI Task Force is seeking your feedback on the challenges firms face in finding/hiring diverse candidates, training needed for your team, ways to create effective Employee Resource Groups or other needs, as well as topics you are seeking to explore with our engineering business community Please email us with your ideas, thoughts and challenges.
ACEC/MA is committed to maintaining an open environment where everyone is welcomed and not judged. We are taking an in-depth look at our association to make sure we provide an environment where all can freely and safely share ideas and where we can all grow from the diversity of our organization. We stand in solidarity against systematic racial injustice. We value our members and colleagues. We stand against racism in all forms.
In response to the many issues we've already heard about from some of our members, here are some resources to assist you and your firm:
