HOK Named a St. Louis Mosaic Ambassador Company

 ST. LOUIS—The St. Louis Mosaic Project is pleased to name HOK, a global design, architecture, engineering and planning firm, as the 30th Mosaic Ambassador Company. HOK is a Gold Level Ambassador.

Managed by the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, the Mosaic Project aims to promote regional prosperity through innovation, inclusion and immigration. Ambassador companies take part in volunteer opportunities that support international communities, spread awareness, participate in events including the Professional Connector Program and International Mentoring Program, and commit to sponsoring at least one employee toward an H1-B visa or similar visa sponsorship.

            “HOK is a champion of diversity and inclusion, and they are amplifying their welcoming efforts by becoming a Gold Level Mosaic Ambassador Company,” said Betsy Cohen, executive director of the St. Louis Mosaic Project.

 “A commitment to opportunity has always been a hallmark of HOK,” said Stacy Krell, senior human resources manager in St. Louis. “The different backgrounds of our people in 24 offices worldwide broaden our vision and feed our strengths. We’re looking forward to collaborating with the Mosaic Project to continue building a diverse, vibrant workforce in St. Louis and across the globe.”


About the St. Louis Mosaic Project

The St. Louis Mosaic Project was launched in 2012 in response to an economic impact report, outlining St. Louis to be lagging in immigrant growth as well as highlighting the economic benefits of increasing its foreign-born population. The Mosaic Project is a regional initiative that is professionally managed by St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, World Trade Center St. Louis and a 32-member committee. Its goal is to transform St. Louis into the fastest growing major metropolitan area for immigration by 2025, to add 25,000 more foreign born to the region from 2016-2025 and to promote regional prosperity through immigration and innovation.
