DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
MHR is a leader in minority and female business development.
At MHR, our commitment to diversity & inclusion has been in place since the company’s inception. We understand that true innovation in business arises when there is a collaborative and inclusive foundation, and we have spent over 20 years building the core principles that now extend to every client we serve.
We believe that by providing diverse perspectives, our clients will design better products, deliver better services, and ultimately build a better world.
MHR has managed over $2 billion in contracts that have been awarded by its clients to minority, female owned, and disadvantaged business enterprises.
The company has received several awards for diversity & inclusion, including two national awards from the Airport Minority Advisory Council for DBE Program of the Year in Atlanta and St. Louis. MHR was also awarded the Partner and Progress award from the Coca-Cola company for our work on the New World of Coke Museum.
Additionally, MHR was the first and only U.S. consultant to work on the South African Procurement Task Force; a joint effort between the Department of Public Works and the Department of Industry and Trade, which established the first affirmative action model for South Africa’s Black Empowerment Program.
We collect, review, and apply insights derived from employees to respond to the changing needs of our projects and our clients. Our services include: Outreach, verification, procurement, monitoring, and technical assistance.
Over the past several years, Atlanta has developed into a hot spot for technology companies started by diverse entrepreneurs. MHR has played a vital role in encouraging, supporting and advising several of the companies. These companies include: Partpic (acquired by Amazon), Myavana, EnrichHer, and Axis Replay.
In addition to supporting individual companies, MHR has lectured at, contributed to, or advised several institutions that are focused on creating, developing, and supporting diverse entrepreneurs. These institutions include the Farm at Comcast, Opportunity Hub, the Russell Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and the Gathering Spot.
