Supplier Diversity

Our Commitment

TRC understands that we need to be part of the change we want to see in this world. Advancing diversity and inclusion within our organization and our supply chain helps us live up to our values and achieve a positive impact for all our stakeholders.

We embrace unique points of view and recognize that individuals from diverse backgrounds and abilities contribute valuable skills, knowledge, experience and opinions, creating a problem-solving environment that provides our clients with innovative solutions and higher levels of service. Equally important, diverse and small businesses drive our national economy and serve to lift our communities. Through collaboration with suppliers that reside and work locally, we build strong relationships within our communities and reinforce our commitment to their prosperity.

Diversity Management

Our Supplier Diversity Management Program (SDMP) promotes diversity and inclusion in our operations, services and procurement processes so we can deliver exceptional value for our clients. We acknowledge our clients’ diversity goals and strive to meet or exceed them in the execution of each contract. Our dynamic program accommodates varying goals and requirements, including project-specific objectives, performance tracking and reporting. We are committed to continually enhancing our SDMP and we strive to provide our employees with the necessary resources and education needed to implement the program effectively.
