Diversity & Inclusion

Where Every Voice is Heard

We look to our differences to bring a richness of perspective. This openness pushes each of us to think differently on behalf of our clients, industry partners and each other. Our employee-owners reflect a wide range of backgrounds and cultures. This is integral to achieving the expanse of ideas and solutions that maximize our clients’ goals and mirror our clients’ unique needs.  

We are Committed to:

Cultivating a rich, diverse and inclusive culture that has, and will continue to be, a companywide commitment as McCarthy strives to reflect the communities and clients we serve and deliver exceptional results.

  • Recruiting, developing and retaining a diverse talent base
  • Fair and equitable pay for all employees
  • Assembling diverse teams
  • Driving understanding, education and awareness
  • Ensuring everyone is empowered to succeed
  • Valuing each person’s skills, ideas and perspectives
  • Proactively seeking diverse industry partners and suppliers
  • Relentlessly supporting our communities through mentoring and outreach

McCarthy is honored to have been recognized as a Forbes Best Employer for Diversity for our commitment.

Change is Everyone's Responsibility

logoMcCarthy is proud to help build an industry and work environment that is diverse, safe, welcoming, inclusive and empowering for all. We believe it is our responsibility as a leader in our industry to drive this effort.

McCarthy is a founding member of Time for Change, an industry collaboration to build awareness and identify ways to improve diversity, equity and inclusion across our industry. We helped launch the creation of Construction Inclusion Week to bring these areas to the forefront. We also took the Associated General Contractors of America Culture of CARE pledge because we believe in taking action within our organization, industry and communities.

Inclusion and Industry Growth

Inclusion and Industry Growth

McCarthy is proud to enrich our communities through the work we do. Community outreach and economic inclusion are business imperatives that ultimately strengthen our company and spur growth. These directly benefit the communities where we live and work by creating more opportunity and therefore a stronger pipeline of talent within our industry.

Though every client and commercial construction project in unique, we are committed to be on the forefront of capacity building and economic inclusion opportunities in support of our workforce and trade partners. Our approach to expanding partner diversity includes:

  • Developing Project Specific Inclusion Plans
  • Working closely with clients to establish goals and specific steps for achieving them
  • Supporting minority contractor success through formal and informal mentoring efforts
  • Encouraging all partners to make minority inclusion a priority
  • Actively soliciting a range of prospective bidders
  • Tracking and reporting on our results

McCarthy Partnership for Women

The McCarthy Partnership for Women is an employee resource group focused on supporting the recruitment, development and retention of women in the construction industry to broaden diversity of perspective. Ultimately, McCarthy’s goal is to develop and support a company culture where the industry’s top talent wants to join, stay and succeed for their careers.

Building the Next Generation of Leaders

Increasing diversity across our industry begins by introducing a wide range of young people to the many rewarding construction career opportunities, then providing them with the tools and resources to pursue these. One way we are doing this is through our national sponsorship of the ACE Mentor Program of America.
