West Yost values diversity in the workplace, which creates a positive and effective work environment. This environment attracts talented people, and it encourages current employees to perform to their highest potential.
West Yost fosters diversity, and we respect the contributions of all our employees through our corporate Affirmative Action Plan. Each year, we measure the effectiveness of our action plan efforts by benchmarking growth, and we develop future programs.
While engineering has traditionally been a male-dominated industry, at West Yost, 39% of our engineers are women. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics in 2010, women represent approximately 13% of the engineering industry. Throughout our offices, we have staff with diverse and accomplished backgrounds that complement West Yost’s ability to provide superior service to our clients.
