Redefining Possible Through Community Empowerment

Inclusive economic growth means investing in innovation, creating opportunities for Diverse Business Enterprise (DBE) partners, and making construction careers more accessible for underserved populations. Strengthening the economic health of our communities and cultivating allyships and partnerships around equity to break down systemic barriers is essential to our industry. 

We have a history of success in developing and implementing community empowerment programs on sports construction projects across the country. Fostering the growth of minority-owned and women-owned businesses has been the cornerstone of our daily practice. That's why community empowerment of small and diverse businesses and individuals is both the intention and legacy of our work. It’s about providing opportunities that make a lasting impact on people and their communities.

The Value of Community Empowerment in Sports Construction

Sports construction projects present a unique opportunity to engage fanbases, maximize diverse partnerships, and set the standards for inclusion and diversity in the workforce.
