Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

It is our continuing policy to afford equal employment opportunity to qualified individuals regardless of their race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical or mental disability, or protected veteran status, and to conform to applicable laws and regulations. 

Our policy of equal opportunity pertains to all aspects of the employment relationship, including application and initial employment, promotion and transfer, selection for training opportunities, salary administration, and the application of service, retirement, seniority, and employee benefit plan policies. 

BPMI also strives to foster an inclusive work environment. We believe that our differences make us stronger and that diversity of thought, circumstance, and experience is as important as demographic diversity. Our expectations for our work environment go beyond what is required by law; we believe we have an ethical duty to develop a workforce that is as diverse as the nation whose defense we support in fulfilling our company mission. 

Our Affirmative Action Plan is developed locally and on an annual basis.  It provides for a comprehensive reporting and monitoring procedure.  

We partner with several local and national organizations to communicate our openings and encourage a diverse population to apply.  Those organizations include:

  • Achieva
  • American Legion
  • CAMEO of Virginia Tech
  • City of Schenectady
