Diversity and Inclusion in the Construction Industry - Part I

The Young Professionals Council of the Construction Institute will be hosting a timely discussion about how to make the construction industry more inclusive and diverse. There will be three short scenarios presented in the form of skits to highlight common issues one may encounter in the Industry, including age differences and earning respect from older associates. Following each skit, the audience will engage in a question and answer discussion about the positive and negative aspects. Unique strategies will be presented, to maximize the chances that any particular working dynamic could be a smooth and efficient relationship.
