Diversity and Inclusion

We are dedicated to fostering and advancing our goal of an inclusive environment.

Companies that have diversity in age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, physical ability, ethnicity, and perspective are proven to be better companies. Celebrating and caring for the individual is a core belief at Floyd|Snider, and we continue to seek meaningful opportunities to improve in this way.

Today, and every day, we stand with members of our community who continue to suffer injustices due to the color of their skin. We support the Black Lives Matter movement and are adding our voice to the call to end systemic racism.

We know there is work to be done, both in the world and at Floyd|Snider. We are committed to doing the following:

Support a diversity, equity, and inclusion team to work closely with firm leadership to identify opportunities and recommendations for continual organizational improvement.

Be willing to have difficult conversations about race and equity both internally and with our business partners to promote antiracism and social equity.

Provide employee trainings and experiences to nurture a more justice- and inclusion-forward workplace and business. Create space to listen to underrepresented voices. Seek out and support diverse thinking, perspectives, and experiences.

Support and participate in initiatives to achieve more BIPOC representation in environmental science and engineering fields. Implement continual improvements to our hiring process to enhance diversity in applicants.

Support BIPOC-owned businesses. Build relationships with local nonprofits and donate from our earnings to help support real change, improve racial equity, and address impacts of climate change and pollution on historically marginalized groups.
