Expanding the Engineering Workforce

The engineering profession has always been grounded in integrity, fairness, and service to community. Engineers build communities. We create space, and by extension, we create the social experience. We support equality and respect for all humankind. We believe in providing equitable opportunities within our profession to support untapped potential within our workforce and the communities we serve. And we have the power to foster progress by breaking down the physical barriers that can inhibit economic and social equity.

Those are the principles that guide our community through this difficult time. Through ACEC, we will embrace inclusion and diversity and continue to focus our members on ways to lift people to become their best selves and to make our companies models of the values we embrace.
