COVID-19 Response

What we do impacts people, communities and the world – and never more so than now as our world faces unprecedented challenges in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The pandemic is changing our world in broad-reaching ways, from travel to trade, health systems to social equality, digital to cybersecurity, globalization to urbanization.

As we help our clients and communities navigate both the seen and surprising ways that things are changing, we’re thinking differently about the changing road ahead, what to expect and how to plan, and how to adapt and thrive – both today and into tomorrow as the world changes and we face other unprecedented challenges.

Jacobs has launched a global Action Plan for Advancing Justice and Equality, which builds on Jacobs’ existing global inclusion and diversity strategy, TogetherBeyond℠, and sets actionable initiatives and measurable objectives in the company’s continuing efforts to address embedded and systemic racial inequities.

Employees initiated the development of the action plan with a team who collaborated alongside Jacobs’ Board of Directors and Executive Leadership Team to outline three key sets of commitments and specific, measurable actions with performance outcomes:

  1. Amplify culture of belonging
  2. Recruit, retain and advance Black employees based on merit
  3. Contribute to structural change in the broader society
