Equal Employment Opportunities

CDI’s commitment to Equal Employment Opportunities is more than a notice on the wall or a policy buried in a manual. It’s how we do business.

Our approach to partnering with Small Woman Minority Owned Businesse Enterprises (SWMBE) is the first step of providing fair and nondiscriminatory employment opportunities for subcontractors as well as our in-house workforce. Our SWMBE subcontracting plan has four key elements: Intentional Minority Subcontracting, Mentoring of Minority- and Women-Owned Firms, Intentional Minority Recruitment, and K-12 STEM Pipeline Development. These programs have enabled us to attain SWMBE participation rates as high as 65% on our projects.

Our goal is to ensure that the diversity of our project delivery staff mirrors the diversity of the communities in which we live.
