Mortenson has been on our diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) journey for more than a decade, with committed efforts to creating a culture where everyone feels belonging and our differences are celebrated. In 2022, the Denver Business Journal recognized Mortenson as a winner of the 2022 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Award. In its inaugural year, the Award honors both outstanding organizations and outspoken individuals in metro Denver who go above and beyond to bolster equality across all areas of diversity, including age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion and neurodiversity.
The success of our business is a result of the strength of our teams who draw on a diversity of perspectives. As we actively invest in a more inclusive culture through mentorship programs, resource groups, partnerships with minority businesses, structured bid packages and more, we strive daily to positively impact DEI within our company and our communities.
Fostering diversity, equity and inclusion in our workplace looks like:
A few of the organizations we Support in Denver:
