Under her leadership as owner of GinGer Cunningham & Associates, AECOM was able to benefit from GinGer’s tutelage in several areas, including team coaching, directing, and teaching us in the area of diversity & inclusion programs. Because of her knowledge and leadership, we met and developed relationships with a number of diverse contractors and suppliers not known to us before. Not only did Ginger assist us in the MWBE identification process, she provided a mentor/protégé forum where we could assist them toward improving their technical skills and capacities. As they grew, so did we with the final outcome being that we received a better product! Additionally, GinGer Cunningham & Associates assisted us with construction monitoring and with being in compliance with the applicable governmental regulations We regarded her organization as a valuable member of our team. She comprehensively handled all of our diversity outreach programs from developing and forwarding the event notices to her vast number of contacts to making the various events that we conducted a tremendous success. Lastly, Ginger is definitely a hardworking individual who is committed and sincere about affirmative action, equal opportunity, fair wages, and diversity & inclusion.

I have worked alongside Ginger Cunningham on projects for 10 years. Ginger is well received, articulate and her passion for her work is very evident, whether she is talking multinational construction managers or small contractors. She understands getting construction work is a process and respects the time and effort it takes for all parties, but still challenges all parties to meet more in the middle. I am confident in my recommendation for Ginger and her team and their outreach and consulting services.
