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. 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
Clark Construction is proud to participate in the week and is excited to introduce new activities designed to spur meaningful conversations, build connections, and drive engagement, including the “Making It Personal” panel screening and discussion, common ground activities, and national jobsite stand down, among others. Realizing a culture of inclusion and belonging starts with a conversation and these planned activities will help teams to thrive as individuals and succeed together as #OneClark. All team members have a role to play to positively contribute to a more inclusive workplace, industry, and community.
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.
