Our Commitment to Supplier Diversity
“Our ability to grow depends on the diversity of our people’s skills, backgrounds, and perspectives. The planet has proven diversity is directly proportional to stability.” – Tom Brisbin, CEO
Willdan’s success depends on creating and maintaining a qualified, diverse workforce with a variety of business partnerships. Our organization is committed to hiring and collaborating with staff, suppliers, and contractors that accurately represent and reflect the diversity of the communities where we work. We actively seek out suppliers who possess unique skillsets and can provide the specialty services needed to successfully support our business needs as well as our core value of increasing the diversity of our team.
Our Supplier Diversity Program
Willdan’s Supplier Diversity Program is founded on our commitment to partnering with and utilizing diverse businesses to the greatest extent possible. We recognize that supplier diversity is a critical element to our success, as well as a matter of policy and national interest for social and economic benefit.
We proactively identify and recruit diverse suppliers to be a part of the Willdan Team, and to participate on projects ranging from municipal engineering to large utility energy efficiency programs. We conduct significant due diligence to ensure that our partners are capable, competent, and effective.
Willdan’s commitment is not only to make a good-faith effort to meet diverse supplier goals. We are dedicated to mentor, outreach, and identify greater participation opportunities among women, minority, service-disabled veteran, and LGBTQ-owned business vendors as program opportunities are anticipated and identified. We foster a vigorous open network to build and expand upon our vendor base, including Trade Allies. All new opportunities, based on scope, location, and other factors, are reviewed to identify where the services of diverse businesses are applicable.
Team with Us!
We maintain an open network to support our diversity goals, add supplemental and complimentary capabilities, and to innovate and build upon new technologies.
