PAE Diversity Partnership Program

Creating Successful and Diverse Partnerships

The PAE Diversity Partnership Program is intended to provide an intentional, structured approach for PAE and minority and women-owned partner firms to pursue and deliver successful projects together. The program is a result of three virtual COBID roundtable discussions and experience with numerous minority and women-owned partnerships over the years.

Partner firms will meet and communicate regularly with PAE to set goals, identify strengths and challenges, and perform work in a mutually beneficial relationship.
