Save the date for Construction Inclusion Week 2022: October 17-21, 2022. Construction Inclusion Week amplifies awareness while celebrating diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) throughout the industry to spearhead change. The week provides educational and business resources for the construction industry including office teams, craft and jobsite crews, and industry affiliates. New additions to the curriculum for 2022 include live-streamed content, facilitator tools, and more robust curriculum resources. Most tangibly, Construction Inclusion Week 2022 introduces a DEI Maturity Assessment to use as a baseline for targeted engagement with the training materials and future strategic implementation for industry firms.
Participating in Construction Inclusion Week allows individual construction companies to be a part of the change.
Daily themes for 2022 include:
- Commitment & Accountability
- Supplier Diversity
- Workplace Culture
- Community Engagement
Participating firms will receive materials and resources to bring awareness to diversity, equity, and inclusion concepts for job sites, teams, and companies. Simulcast content will air online during the week on www.ConstructionInclusionWeek.com, in addition to in-person activities planned by industry partners throughout the country.
The construction industry's culture must become more inclusive to genuinely attract, retain, and develop the best talent and maximize supplier diversity. Construction Inclusion Week aims to foster conversations that create alignment and push further on this journey for the industry overall. For 2022, Construction Inclusion Week content utilizes a DEI maturity model framework to enable participating firms to discover materials best suited to their current level.
Planning is underway, and firm registration is open online: www.constructioninclusionweek.com. For more information, email email@example.com.
Historically, the construction industry makes the most progress when members collaboratively work together. The actions of individual firms may move the needle, but fostering sustainable and measurable change requires unity, a shared focus on achieving goals, and taking bold steps. In 2021, over one thousand firms nationwide participated in the Construction Inclusion Week awareness effort. The founding group's single purpose is identifying ways to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in construction and is comprised of Gilbane Building Company, DPR Construction, Turner Construction, Mortenson, McCarthy, and Clark Construction Group. George Pfeffer (DPR Construction) and Dan Johnson (Mortenson), serve as co-chairs for Construction Inclusion Week 2022.
