2016 Diversity & Inclusion Award (Photo credit: Port of Seattle, Don Wilson)
Port of Seattle Chapter of Blacks in Government Awarded
Champion of Diversity & INclusion Award
The Port of Seattle's Champion of Diversity and Inclusion award is given annually to a current employee or work team that embodies the Port’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. In 2016, this award was given to the Port of Seattle chapter of Blacks in Government (BIG).
We mention it here, as Fishing & Commercial Operations Director Kenny Lyles (pictured above shaking Port of Seattle CEO Ted Fick's hand) is the leader of the Port's chapter of BIG and the Fishing & Commercial Operations Department exemplifies these values in their day-to-day work.
The Port of Seattle chapter of Blacks in Government was established in 1993, and currently has a membership of 70+ Port of Seattle Employees. The chapter also boasts 10 out of the 14 previous Port of Seattle diversity award winners in the membership and is looked upon to provide cultural awareness and education, professional development, as well as advocacy to and for employees without representation.
The primary goal of the Port of Seattle Chapter of Blacks in Government is to uplift the Port of Seattle as a progressive and all-inclusive organization. BIG wants the Port to be a leader and pace-setter amongst other government agencies across the country for diversity and inclusion. The Port chapter has been recognized nationally for its work in the community and amongst Port employees who’ve sought professional development opportunity and promotion. The chapter has advocated for fairness from frontline supervision all the way to the CEO, all the while remaining professional and respectful of our organization in the process.

Project Update: Net Shed Roof Replacement
The Net Sheds 3, 4, 5 & 6 roof replacement project received Port of Seattle Commission authorization on September 13th 2016. The improvements will consist of roof demolition, installation of new gutters, fall protection, security ladders, and the installation of a new built-up roofing system. The project will also include a demonstration project at Net Shed 5 to install solar panels to explore implementation and cost associated with adding solar to various Port facilities. It is the first-ever solar project at a Port facility!
The project is returning to Commission in late December/early January 2017 for construction authorization and will be put out to bid shortly thereafter.
