It’s no surprise that the construction industry lacks diversity. And yet, diversity matters. Diversity brings a unique perspective to any workforce and can answer many of the challenges our industry faces, such as labor shortage, greater team engagement, increasing productivity, and excellence in decision-making and innovation. Developing greater diversity in construction will require a committed focus on all fronts—from business owners, industry leaders and even from diverse individuals. In this session, we'll discuss why diversity matters, how to create a welcoming environment to attract a more diverse workforce, and how diverse individuals can take ownership for personal growth and leadership.
