2nd Annual Construction Inclusion Week: October 17-21
We are proud to stand with several other industry leaders to celebrate the second annual Construction Inclusion Week. The goal of Construction Inclusion Week is to build awareness of the need to improve diversity and inclusion in the construction industry by providing content and resources and harnessing our collective power. By working together, learning from one another, and having consistent commitments and actions towards maintaining a safe and inclusive work environment – where every individual belongs – Construction Inclusion Week will effect positive change in the industry for generations of workers to come.
Participation in Construction Inclusion Week has doubled since last year. The firms engaged are taking a stand in their own company and throughout the industry, demonstrating we are ready to create a future of possibilities. Together, with critical resources and dedicated leaders at the forefront of this mission, this grassroots initiative is bringing awareness to diversity , equity and inclusion for our jobsites, teams and companies – striving to establish a place where we all feel like we belong.
