Our managers are inspiring! Get to know Ashok from the Water Market.

Q: What is your role at Atkins?

A: I am the Technical Manager leading the US West Water Infrastructure sub-practice.

Q: How is collaboration central to what you do at Atkins?

A: My role with Atkins requires me to interact closely with the staff in my group as well as other leaders in the Water Practice both in the US and abroad, specifically in the UK and India.  The main goal of coordination between these internal groups is to help ensure projects are resourced appropriately whilst also ensuring staff have work and the necessary tools and support to successfully function in their respective roles and forward their careers.  Obviously, collaboration with every individual I communicate with is at the heart of that role.

Q: What does diversity mean to you?

A: I see diversity as a collection of individuals with varied backgrounds across all spectrums – racial/ethnic/age/etc.  The beauty of diversity to me lies in the fact that it creates a perfect environment that fosters learning and growth and it provides the opportunity to develop the ability to empathize.

Q: What is your favorite movie and why?

A: “The Shawshank Redemption.”  I really like the main characters ability to persevere through injustice and the redemptive qualities of the human spirit that are conveyed during the film.

Q: What is your favorite quote and why?

A: “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose." -Dr. Seuss.  I like that it alludes to the fact every individual has an innate ability to control their own destiny.
