Inclusion & Diversity at CHA
CHA is committed to the values of inclusion and equality and to the full participation of all people. While it begins with our aspiration to responsibly improve the world we live in, it goes far beyond that. We believe in a culture that empowers our staff to drive change – promoting thought leadership, social responsibility, and dignity in all that we do in our business and in our personal lives.
We provide opportunities for community outreach, sponsored lunch presentations, company-endorsed sports teams, and social events to allow employees to relax and build stronger relationships with one another.
Our offices offer their own unique events throughout the year, and we encourage new ideas and innovative ways for us to collaborate and socialize. Our employees also engage in outside-of-work events such as company picnics, holiday celebrations and sports leagues.
We understand and appreciate the importance of educating and providing for our future generation of leaders. We have recently focused our charitable efforts on STEM programs to support youth at an early age with the hope to inspire evolving young minds to obtain future interest in the engineering industry. We accept both corporate and individual requests for donations related to supporting the STEM program.
We are determined to become heavily involved in STEM-driven programs both nationally and regionally. We believe this aspiration encourages our employees to invest their time participating in sponsorships, fundraisers and volunteer projects.
We look forward to continuously growing our community involvement, expanding our corporate giving efforts, and strengthening our relationships with well-known organizations that support the STEM program. We are also heavily involved in local charitable walks, food drives, and other community efforts that are important to our employees.
