Proudly celebrating pride season 2019
BuroHappold is built on firm foundations of diversity and inclusivity. We are proud to be a practice that represents and reflects the glorious variety of the world in which we live, and we embrace diversity of experience, background and perspective so that we can engineer a better world for us all.
But a recent New Civil Engineer survey into attitudes towards LGBT+ people in the construction industry shows that there is still work to be done. A lot of work. It reported that 53% of LGBT+ engineers said they had heard homophobic slurs, and that 27% had personally received them.
These statistics are unacceptable, and that is why we are marking Pride 2019 by confronting bystander culture, to actively stand with the LGBT+ community as allies who challenge non-inclusive behaviour.
What our leaders say:
Our senior team are leading by example to set a precedent. We want to create a happy and healthy work environment in which people can feel comfortable, knowing that their point of view will be heard, understood, respected and valued.
We are proud to embrace diversity and committed to supporting equality for all in the workplace. Together, we are one creative community.
