Robert has worked across AECOM’s Europe region to bring together ethnically diverse employees. For this reason, he helped to create the company’s first employee resource group (ERG) – the Ethnic Diversity Network. As Chair, he was instrumental in setting the vision and objectives while challenging the business’ strategies and decisions. Since then, membership has grown to over 400 members. With the support of leadership, Robert developed a long-term framework, and short-term goals that drove tangible change. Since 2021, he has been creating opportunities and a safe space for ethnically diverse colleagues to discuss any concerns and delivering six cultural and religious awareness events across Europe. As a result, Robert was able to challenge the business representation targets for ethnically diverse colleagues and the selection and delivery of AECOM’s talent and leadership development programmes. He was also able to influence the Europe Real Estate strategy to ensure inclusion of workplaces.
