We at Richter + Ratner believe that diversity and inclusion in business brings innovation and expertise that bolsters our efforts to support the needs of our customers. It is an important part of the way we do business. We recognize the importance of advancing opportunities to minority, women, and service disabled veteran – owned businesses to compete in the procurement of goods and services for our projects. We strive to work in teams made of individuals with different backgrounds, skills, and values, cultivating diversity in our office environment and at our construction sites.

At R+R we foster a culture of diversity and inclusion in which all employees seek challenges, contribute ideas and have equal opportunities to grow within the organization. The process of building a diverse workforce for the future requires effort, adaptability, vision and inclusion. This helps us to grow as a company, build relationships with each other and with our industry partners and clients.

Richter + Ratner continuously searches to identify and qualify new small, diverse, minority firms to support our work across all areas of the construction field. Whenever possible we participate in outreach programs and solicit bids from qualified firms. This policy of diversity and inclusion brings benefits to R+R such as:

Diversity and inclusion does not stand still but is ever evolving. Once we reach our vision we mirror the diversity in our society. Increased inclusion helps prevent problems rather than solve them. The increased communications, tolerances, and sharing of experiences and perspectives also positively impact our risk management and safety, which is the cornerstone of our business.
