Description

CBIA BizCast host Ali Warshavsky speaks with AI Engineers’ Kevin Hussain about the need to expand diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives.

Hussain, who is associate vice president of bridge inspections at the Middletown-based engineering firm, immigrated to the U.S. from the Caribbean.

He chose to attend Capital Community College and the University of Hartford because each was affordable and he could get to classes using public transportation.

“If I had a seat at the table, the first thing I am going to say is, I took a bus to college and to community college, how are we going to make this project or this university accessible for different people,” Hussain said.

“That’s the key part of it; it comes down to this first part of DEI. Having people like us have a seat at the table, having those conversations, how do we improve
infrastructure and transportation?”
