Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Kiewit

Kiewit’s Core Values — People, Integrity, Excellence and Stewardship — are the driving force behind our ongoing, proactive commitment to building a diverse, equitable and inclusive company. It takes a variety of experiences, backgrounds and perspectives to deliver the best solutions to our clients and communities. Kiewit strives to build an environment where are included, have a voice, and can reach their full potential to make our company the best contracting organization on Earth.

Building a Diverse Talent Pipeline

Through campus outreach, engagement with organizations like the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, National Society of Black Engineers and Society of Women Engineers, Hiring Our Heroes, Department of Defense SkillBridge and Army PaYS, and high-impact scholarship and immersion programs, we continue our efforts to build a diverse talent pipeline.

Future Women in Kiewit Summit

The two-day Future Women in Kiewit Summit brings collegiate women passionate about the construction and engineering industry together with Kiewit employees and leaders to learn more about the company and the industry. This event prioritizes candid conversations about careers in the industry.

Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) + Kiewit Immersion Program

Kiewit’s partnership with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) began in 2022. TMCF helps Kiewit identify construction and engineering students from Historically Black College & Universities (HBCU) to attend a two-day immersion event to learn about working for Kiewit and the industry. Select immersion program participants go on to intern with Kiewit and receive scholarship support from the company.
