For the #RamFam, equity, diversity, and inclusion is not a program they implemented, but a way of being. Integral to the organization’s culture and additive to their growth, it was evident to the jury that this way of being supports different people to engage and benefit from consulting engineering practice.
In selecting Ram Consulting, the jury highlighted and valued the organization’s relationship with Indigenous people and their integration of a philosophy of engagement in polices and processes. As noted by Cook’s Ferry Indian Band Chief Christine Minnabarriet, RAM Consulting has made partnering with and working alongside Indigenous groups a foundational aspect of their business.
This award recognizes the impact of RAM Consulting’s workplace culture and how that culture leads to better outcomes for their team and clients.

About the Award
In 2020, the ACEC-BC Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee worked with our Board to bring forward a new award recognizing the impact of member actions on advancing our values of equity, diversity, and inclusion. The Committee proposed the Award to shine a light on the many ways members are working together to build a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive industry and to recognize the considerable effort needed to effect change.
The Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Award selection was made by a panel of members representing different business practices, which acknowledges that actions supporting equity, diversity, and inclusion are not the responsibility of any one person or group, and must be considered core to the business practice of every member firm.
Change can be difficult. Like building any technical skill, change needs time, clear intention, and deep commitment. Building a more diverse and inclusive industry is a journey, and our inaugural Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Award recipients support us all through their leadership by example.
