Diversity and Inclusion


At CEC® we Get Stuff Built Right® and that includes our commitment to fostering a culture built on a diversity of backgrounds, experiences, skills, perspectives, and ideas.

Our Culture


Diversity is the recognition and celebration of the unique qualities, characteristics, and perspectives of each individual. It acknowledges that every person was created with inherent worth and dignity. Embracing diversity means valuing and respecting the differences in all aspects of human identity.


Equity is the pursuit of fairness and justice for all individuals, ensuring that everyone has equal opportunities to thrive and reach their full potential. Promoting equity involves addressing barriers and biases that may hinder certain individuals or groups from accessing resources and opportunities. It seeks to create a level playing field where everyone can flourish.


Inclusion is the intentional and active practice of welcoming and embracing all individuals into the CEC family. It goes beyond mere tolerance and seeks to create an environment where everyone feels valued, respected, and included as equal members. It encourages the breaking down of barriers, fostering genuine relationships, and ensuring that all voices are heard and valued.


Belonging is the deep sense of connection and acceptance that individuals experience at CEC. Belonging emphasizes the importance of creating a safe and nurturing environment where individuals can fully participate, contribute, and grow.

Our Values


We recognize that every individual possesses unique talents, perspectives, and experiences. We approach conversations and interactions with humility, valuing the inherent worth and dignity of every person. We seek to create an environment where everyone feels heard, respected, and valued for their contributions.

Philippians 2:3-4


We believe in cultivating a culture of honesty and transparency. We encourage open dialogue and constructive feedback, recognizing that honest communication is essential for growth and understanding. By fostering an environment of trust, we can address challenges and biases, promoting a more inclusive and equitable workplace.

Proverbs 11:3


We understand that supporting DEIB requires self-control in our thoughts, words, and actions. We strive to be mindful of our biases and prejudices, actively working to overcome them. By exercising self-control, we create a safe space where individuals can express themselves freely, without fear of judgment or discrimination.

Proverbs 16:32


We embrace the value of generosity, recognizing that through giving we can create a more inclusive and equitable community. We encourage acts of kindness, empathy, and compassion towards one another. By extending generosity to all individuals, regardless of their background or experience, we foster an environment where everyone feels welcome and accepted.

2 Corinthians 9:6-8

Equal Opportunity

We’ve always envisioned a thriving future – for us and for you

CEC began to Get Stuff Built Right® in 1921, and has since grown to be the multi-discipline, regional firm we are today.

“I love working in the engineering industry because what we do genuinely impacts communities and improves people’s day-to-day lives.  All over the region, I see projects on which we’ve worked – buildings, streets, power lines, bridges, parks, highways, schools, and things people take for granted like water and sewer lines or parking facilities.  It’s fulfilling to know that I’m working for a greater purpose and that “Get Stuff Built Right®:  Relationships, Communities, Families” truly means something.”
