Tetra Tech Announces Partnership With The National Society Of Black Engineers

This partnership, between Tetra Tech and the National Society Of Black Engineers (NSBE), is part of a commitment to widening the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) pipeline for Black engineers and scientists by driving recruitment and engagement with collegiate and professional NSBE members.

Tetra Tech’s BELIEVE Employee Resource Group (ERG) is leading the partnership with NSBE. BELIEVE stands for Black Employees Leading in Innovation, Enthusiasm, Vision, and Excellence and was Tetra Tech’s first chartered ERG.

The BELIEVE ERG also provides a forum for Black employees and allies from around the world to engage in dialogue and exchange resources on topics such as professional development, mentoring, and networking.

Preston Hopson, Tetra Tech’s Senior Vice President, General Counsel, and Secretary, said: “Tetra Tech and BELIEVE are proud to partner with NSBE in its mission to develop Black engineers and scientists who will have an impact within the profession and their communities.

“We are excited about the opportunity to support this important work and the participation of Tetra Tech associates with NSBE chapters around the world,” Preston added.

Through the National Society of Black Engineers partnership, Tetra Tech will continue to bring together engineers and technical specialists from all backgrounds to solve its clients’ most challenging problems; a natural alignment with NSBE’s mission to “increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community.”

Tetra Tech joins an esteemed group of corporate partners supporting NSBE’s strategic goal to inspire and graduate 10,000 Black engineers and scientists each year by 2025.
