The strength of Michael Baker International is our people and the passions, experience, capabilities and talent each bring to their projects each and every day.

It is the policy of Michael Baker, and my personal commitment, that equal employment opportunity be provided in the employment and advancement for all persons regardless of race, religion, color, national origin, sex, age, sexual orientation/gender identity and status as a protected veteran or individual with a disability or any other categories protected by applicable federal, state or local laws at all levels of employment. Michael Baker will make every effort to provide reasonable accommodations to any physically and mentally limited individuals with disabilities, and to disabled veterans.
A diverse workforce, across the entire enterprise, creates energy and innovation on which our company continues to grow as a great place to work and demonstrate how ‘We Make a Difference’ in the world.
Commitment to Equal Opportunity and Diversity
Because we understand the importance of having a diverse workforce, we have partnered with the following organizations to encourage and expand our workforce.
SOCIETY OF WOMEN ENGINEERS:
For more than six decades, SWE has given women engineers a unique place and voice within the engineering industry. The organization is centered around a passion for its members' success and continues to evolve with the challenges and opportunities reflected in today's engineering and technology specialties.
WOMEN'S TRANSPORTATION SEMINAR:
Founded in 1977, WTS is an international organization dedicated to the professional advancement of women in transportation. Boasting over 5,000 members - both men and women - WTS is helping women find opportunity and recognition in the transportation industry. Through its professional activities, networking opportunities, and unparalleled access to industry and government leaders, WTS is turning the glass ceiling into a career portal.
NATIONAL SOCIETY OF BLACK ENGINEERS:
Headquartered in Alexandria, Va., NSBE offers academic excellence programs, scholarships, leadership training, professional development and access to career opportunities for thousands of members annually. With over 2000 elected leadership positions, 18 regional conferences and an annual convention, NSBE provides opportunities for success that remain unmatched by any other organization. The mission of the National Society of Black Engineers is "to increase the number of culturally responsible Black Engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community."
SOCIETY FOR HISPANIC PROFESSIONAL ENGINEERS:
The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) was founded in Los Angeles, California, in 1974 by a group of engineers employed by the city of Los Angeles. Their objective was to form a national organization of professional engineers to serve as role models in the Hispanic community.
The concept of Networking was the key basis for the organization. SHPE quickly established two student chapters to begin the network that would grow to encompass the nation as well as reach countries outside the United States. Today, SHPE enjoys a strong but independent network of professional and student chapters throughout the nation.
NATIONAL ORGANIZATION OF MINORITY ARCHITECTS (NOMA)
The National Organization of Minority Architects' (NOMA) mission is to champion diversity within the design profession by promoting the excellence, community engagement, and professional development of its members.
By building strong chapters of design professionals whose sensibilities and interests include promotion of urban communities, the organization is able to respond to the concerns that affect marginalized communities and people. Its goals are to increase the level of participation in the social, political and economic benefits afforded the citizens of this nation and to tear down the barriers that make full participation unattainable. Chapters give members a base from which to be involved in politics, to visit schools and reach out to children, to conduct community and civic forums and to responsibly practice in our professional capacities.
