Diversity + Inclusion

At Barton Malow, we understand that how we build is just as important as what we build. We integrate our commitment to diversity and inclusion into the way we do business, inside and out.


We are committed to fostering a culture where all team members are welcomed, valued, fully utilized, and have fair opportunities to share their thoughts, ideas, and concerns. Our Diversity + Inclusion Community strives to maintain this culture by promoting awareness, providing learning opportunities to sparking meaningful conversations, connecting team members through themed network groups (multicultural exploration, parents/caregivers, young professionals), and embedding it into our talent acquisition and our business practices.

A Commitment to Supplier Diversity

Barton Malow’s Community Engagement Program aims to maximize opportunities for minority, women, and veteran-owned firms (MWVBE) to do business with us through Supplier Diversity Initiatives that include:

  • Centralizing the process for engaging diverse suppliers
  • Strengthening relationships with suppliers by maximizing local engagement opportunities throughout our offices
  • Heightening awareness with Clients who are committed to Diversity + Inclusion
  • Increasing spend with diverse suppliers on projects and in-house purchases

Our initiatives start with being intentional about using MWVBE firms, regardless of client requirements. Our Community Engagement team works directly with procurement and project teams across the company to implement strategies that increase our success rates of business inclusion through: outreach, continuous notification, and updates of bid packages, contractor shark tank meetings, prequalification, assistance and more.
