Providence, R.I.-based Gilbane Building Co has announced the promotion of Yvette Stevens as director of economic inclusion and community affairs. Stevens succeeds director Linda Graves who has transitioned to a role supporting special projects for Gilbane, until her full retirement in 2021.
In her new 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.
“We are excited to see Yvette continue and expand upon the diversity and inclusion successes that Linda has led for the past 13 years at Gilbane,” said Ryan Hutchins, executive vice president at Gilbane. “Yvette’s background in project management, combined with her passion for inclusion and diversity, will drive innovative strategies that benefit our clients, trade partners and internal teams.”
