Building a Diverse Future: Our M/S/DBE Certifications

Our MBE, DBE, LBE, and SBE certifications give you a competitive edge.

In today’s rapidly evolving business landscape, diversity and inclusion have become more than just buzzwords. They are fundamental principles that drive innovation, foster creativity, and create a stronger and more resilient economy. In the world of project management and construction, embracing diversity through Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), Small Business Enterprise (SBE), and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) certifications is not only a best practice but also a testament to a company’s commitment to equality and equity. At Group PMX, we are proud to hold these certifications and stand firmly behind our mission to support diversity in the Architecture/Engineering/Construction (A/E/C) industry.

Supporting Client Diversity Goals

At Group PMX, we recognize that our certifications extend beyond mere documentation; they serve as tangible representations of our core values and unwavering commitment to delivering exceptional results while championing diversity. Let’s explore how these certifications directly contribute to our clients’ pursuit of diversity goals:

Access to a Diverse Network: Our certifications provide clients with access to a diverse network of vendors and suppliers, which can lead to a more inclusive and varied supply chain. This diversity often translates into innovative solutions and cost-effective options for our clients.

Local Expertise: As a certified SBE, we often have an intimate knowledge of local markets and regulations. This allows us to navigate complex projects efficiently and ensure compliance with regional requirements, saving clients time and resources.

Community Engagement: Our MBE and DBE certifications show our commitment to engaging with underrepresented communities. By partnering with us, clients demonstrate their dedication to community development and social responsibility.

Meeting Government Requirements: For clients involved in public projects that require DBE participation, our certification ensures that they meet the necessary regulatory requirements. This can be crucial for securing government contracts and grants.

Supporting Fellow MBE, SBE, and DBE Firms

We believe in the power of collaboration. We actively seek opportunities to support and collaborate with other MBE, SBE, and DBE firms in our industry. Our commitment to diversity extends beyond our own operations, and we are proud to contribute to the growth and success of the broader community through advocacy.
