Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

At Clancy & Theys Construction Company, we believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion are tied to our core values. We define diversity, equity, and inclusion as:

Diversity reflects the ways people are different from one another. This includes race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, military service, socio-economic background, religions and disability.
Equity creates fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement for individuals by establishing systems and processes that prevent the formation of barriers.
Inclusion promotes an environment where individuals feel safe to participate fully because they feel respected and valued for their unique voice, perspective, and abilities.

We do the right thing for our clients, colleagues and communities with a legacy built on:

Safety: We foster an environment that protects quality of life, including the mental, emotional and physical well-being of our employees and contractors.     
Stewardship: We carefully and responsibly manage the resources with which we are entrusted to nurture our culture of accountability and transparency.  
Passion: We lead with intense pride and enthusiasm for our work and care for one another.  
Collaboration: We promote the open exchange of ideas to create a more inclusive workplace.

The primary goal of Clancy & Theys’ Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Program is to provide procurement opportunities to diverse suppliers that satisfy our purchasing and contractual requirements. Secondarily, it supports our customers in achieving their own diversity goals. And thirdly, it provides additional employment opportunities in the local communities that we serve and demonstrates our support and advocacy for inclusion and equity.

We appreciate that it takes great risk, sacrifice, and hard work to start a business, build relationships, gain experience, and succeed in this industry. We applaud the diverse suppliers that have demonstrated the ability to be reliable, add value, and provide high-quality goods and services that are competitively priced. We celebrate their achievements and recognize the economic stimulus they provide to our local economy. We are looking to align ourselves with those businesses that serve the construction industry.

Our objectives include:

  1. Actively seeking out certified diverse suppliers that can provide competitive, high-quality goods and services
  2. Ensuring the inclusion of diverse suppliers as a part of our procurement process
  3. Communicating the value of supplier diversity both internally and externally to all stakeholders
  4. Leveraging our supplier diversity results to meet our clients’ supplier diversity requirements
