PROVIDENCE, RI — Gilbane Building Company announces the promotion of Yvette Stevens to Director of Economic Inclusion and Community Affairs. Stevens succeeds longtime Director Linda Graves who has transitioned to a role supporting special projects for Gilbane, until her full retirement in 2021.

In this national leadership role, Stevens is responsible for the planning and execution of Gilbane’s corporate economic inclusion strategies to support Gilbane’s commitment to marketplace inclusion and diversity. She will drive Gilbane’s community partnerships and promote and engage with historically under-utilized businesses including, minority-owned, women-owned, small and local business enterprises. Stevens will work with local project teams to understand and define the needs and expectations of clients, while strengthening Gilbane’s relationships with key stakeholders and trades to enhance contracting opportunities for local businesses. To support these initiatives, Stevens will collaborate with industry organizations and associations that promote economic inclusion and training opportunities nationwide.

Stevens is also the inaugural Chair of Gilbane’s UJIMA employee resource group, which promotes cultural awareness and implements inclusion and diversity strategies on behalf of Black/African American employees within Gilbane. At a previous company, she was a part of the leadership team that was responsible for organizing strategies to promote retention, recruitment, and engagement of diverse employees and candidates.

Yvette holds a Master of Civil Engineering from Old Dominion University, a Master of Business Administration from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and a Bachelor of Science in civil engineering from Morgan State University. She is a registered Professional Engineer and a certified Project Management Professional.
