In 2020, as our nation began to confront social justice issues, Boxley began a formal process to determine how our company can be more intentional about our diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) efforts.
A team of eight employees from different business lines, backgrounds, and demographics joined together to begin the needed awareness. Open conversations gave a raw look at where Boxley stacked up according to the employees and where they saw room for improvement. By adding a Commitment Statement to DE&I and updating our Company Vision and Core Beliefs, the team set a precedence that the company will uphold.
“When I was approached about being a part and taking charge of the DE&I team, I knew our work was going to be the beginning of a difference within the company. The team came up with great suggestions and insight that were met with positive feedback and encouragement from our Leadership Team. We want to continue to be a step ahead in meeting challenges like this. I’m excited to see the future of this program and am optimistic about the path it will lead the company down.” – Stacy Barbour (Quarry Manager- Fieldale/DE&I Chairperson)
We will be the industry leader in all facets of our business with the diverse talent to sustain it.
