The Best Ideas Come From The Most Diverse Teams
We believe that the diversity in our industry and community is a fundamental strength of our region. Our mission is best fulfilled when we embrace diversity as a value and practice. We maintain that achieving diversity requires an enduring commitment from both management and field operations and must be ingrained in our organizational culture, values, and behaviors.
Throughout our work we will support diversity in all its forms, encompassing age, disability status, economic circumstance, ethnicity, gender, race, religion and sexual orientation. Our commitment to be a part of the process includes assuming leadership positions with the Associated General Contractors and the St. Louis Council of Construction Consumers Diversity Committees.
Leading by example, we aspire to make diversity a core and abiding strength of icon Mechanical.
Our Diverse Team
Our commitment to diversity and inclusion starts with us. icon Mechanical strives to build a team that is truly reflective of the communities we serve in every level of our business. We know that when diverse minds and perspectives come together, the possibilities are limitless.
Creating Diverse Partnerships
As we build upon the diversity within our own company, we also actively seek out partnerships with businesses whose own commitments to diversity mirror ours. That includes architects, planners, equipment manufacturers, and material supply companies who hire diverse teams or are themselves minority-owned businesses. By actively seeking out these partnerships, we contribute to strengthening diverse businesses in our industry.
Building a Diverse Workforce
Community outreach allows icon Mechanical to invest in more inclusive workplaces for the future. We look for ways to bring the experience of our industry to diverse groups of young people to raise awareness and build interest in our field. These are the engineering and contracting professionals of tomorrow, and by reaching out we’re helping to foster diversity in our industry for years to come.
Diversity In Contractor Management
We choose to work with other contractors from minority-owned businesses, with their own diverse teams. Building these relationships is a core principle of how we do business, as we know that the only way to foster diversity outside of our walls is through active partnership.
