Last year, Garver was also named Employer of the Year by the Mississippi and Oklahoma chapters, and by the Heart of Texas chapter in 2021.
Garver encourages women to pursue careers in engineering and supports them on their journey — through measures like the Transportation Mentoring Program or tuition reimbursement. Through professional development programs and Connect, the firm’s in-house initiative to support and connect employees across the footprint through companywide in-person and virtual events. But Garver also places a high priority on encouraging employee involvement in professional industry organizations at all levels.
Garver has also hosted programs aimed at broadening the talent pipeline and encouraging young women to take an interest in STEM fields. These initiatives have ranged from Garver Launch, the firm’s internship program, to GarverGives, the firm’s corporate giving program, and everything in between.
Garver celebrates the progress women have made at the firm, as well as the progress made across the industry. The company is committed to providing the tools they need for success.
