鶹Ƶ Diversity & Inclusion Forum

Join the Forum Email List Here

鶹Ƶ welcomes all members and chapter staff who have an interest in construction industry diversity & inclusion issues to join the Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Forum. The D&I Forum is an online, email community that enables 鶹Ƶ members to connect with each other, keep pace with the latest construction D&I developments, solve problems and share best practices. Participation in the Forum is not a volunteer opportunity and requires no commitment to attend meetings or serve on the D&I Committee. But it ensures prompt notification of such opportunities when they arise.

鶹Ƶ Diversity & Inclusion Roundtable

鶹Ƶ brings together industry leaders annually to address pivotal aspects of fostering diversity & inclusion within the construction industry. The D&I Roundtable is a full day of interactive, peer-to-peer discussions designed for individuals working for construction firms who are responsible for their company's diversity & inclusion efforts. There are no formal presentations; attendees set the agenda based on topics, challenges, or best practices they would like to discuss. Each roundtable is limited to 40 participants.

See below a recap from previous D&I Roundtables:
