Alicia Mojica Washington manages the strategic initiatives and business development efforts for HRP Associates, along with a team of four, and oversees corporate and client sector branding; development of industrial, state and federal proposals and qualifications packages; supervision of marketing communications; and initiation of research and development opportunities.
She has over 16 years of marketing experience in the A/E/C industry, including marketing and business development support in the areas of architecture, civil and environmental engineering, site development, investigation and remediation, environmental health and safety compliance, bridge inspection and construction inspection and administration.
As a Latina growing up in an extremely diverse urban city in Connecticut, Alicia realized a noticeable shift with diversity when she started her career in 2004. After many years of being underrepresented from firm to firm, she decided to take action within her firm and other organizations in which she participated in. Today, Alicia is leading the Diversity and Inclusion Initiative for SMPS CT and will be the first Latina president for the organization in 2021. She is also a member of the founding committee for the soon-to-be Connecticut chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects.
Alicia continues to use her voice and experiences to promote diversity and inclusion within the marketing profession of the A/E/C industry, and the A/E/C industry globally. She is also a board member and the membership chair of the Construction Institute and volunteers at her local Boys & Girls Club of America, speaking to youth ages 6 to 18 about career opportunities.
