OVERLAND PARK, KS — Black & Veatch announces Silas S. Dulan III as an Associate Vice President and the company’s Global Director of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion. Dulan will work with company leaders to advance commitments to creating and sustaining a diverse, inclusive, and equitable workplace.

Dulan previously served in various DEI-related leadership roles, most recently as Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at electric utility company Evergy. Dulan’s experience includes facilitation of companywide training and education, extensive work with employee resource groups and boards of directors, and improvement of diversity in hiring.

“Silas will be a key contributor to further strengthen our collaborative, inclusive, and innovative culture where we value and respect one another’s differences and continually enhance how we work together as employee-owners,” said Black & Veatch Chairman and CEO Mario Azar. “In an industry where complex challenges demand innovative solutions, real value is driven by the unique skills, backgrounds and experiences of all our professionals.”

As part of its DEI focus, Black & Veatch has increased leadership diversity while driving DEI principles further into the organization’s hiring practices and training. One example includes a new program that matched professionals representing historically marginalized communities with Black & Veatch leaders who provide support, advocacy, and career development guidance. In addition, the company recently launched a DEI knowledge builder learning series with courses for all professionals to build empathy, understanding, and a culture of inclusion.
