Today in recognition of #InternationalWomensDay we are celebrating E. Holdings, Inc. Managing Director, Janai Smith.
Janai has built a firm that has become a dominant figure within Pittsburgh’s consulting industry. Her family’s MWBE consulting firm has participated in and led some of Pittsburgh’s most prominent infrastructure projects. Through her senior project management, Janai secured contract renewals for a regional infrastructure project and expanded geographically to provide similar services in areas like Flint, Michigan.
Janai receives recognition from her peers and is active in her community. She was recently recognized as an Emerging Pioneer by the Hill District Community Development Corporation (CDC) at the organization’s 30th Anniversary Celebration Most importantly Janai has hired women as leaders in the firm. She is an active member in the African American Chamber of Commerce of Western PA (AACCWP), Southwestern Pennsylvania Engineering Outreach (SPEO), and the Society of Women Environmental Professionals (SWEP) – Three Rivers.
Janai is a champion for her team. Three out of E. Holdings, Inc.’s four service lines are led by women managers. She also ensures that the MWBE firm is staffed by a diverse workforce.
