Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

BL Companies is committed to fostering a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in all aspects of our business. As an employee-owned firm, we recognize the importance of creating a workplace that values and respects the unique perspectives and experiences of our employees and stakeholders. We strive to foster belonging and empowerment in our workplaces. We listen and engage with our diverse communities through the projects that we pursue and our charitable contributions. And we value teamwork with our diverse suppliers.

We strive to recruit and retain a diverse range of employees, including individuals from different races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, ages, religions, and abilities. We believe that a diverse workforce fosters creativity, innovation, and better decision-making.
