With the U.S. becoming increasingly diverse, our industry in general and construction companies will need to reflect changing demographics to maintain, grow and/or reinforce a competitive edge. The arguments for a company including diversity and inclusion as a key business strategy go beyond the moral imperative of “doing the right thing” and focus on the measurable financial results that can be achieved by cultivating a sound D & I culture. Diversity and inclusion programs and initiatives are valuable strategies to generating innovation, increasing profitability, and ensuring a positive and sustaining legacy of progress.
