Committed to Diversity & Inclusion

It is CEI's policy to ensure that certified Minority, Women and Disabled-Veteran Business Enterprises (MWDVBE), Disability-Owned Business Enterprises (DOBE) and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Business Enterprises (LGBTBE) participate broadly as CEI partners and suppliers and deliver quality, service and competitive pricing using the highest ethical and professional standards. 

Working with diverse business partners fuels our success, which is why we are committed to ensuring our approach to diversity is integrated into business strategies, procedures and community outreach efforts. We regularly meet with diverse suppliers during the pre-construction phase of projects to maximize their engagement and value.
