The Data on Diversity and Women in Construction

Register today

A diverse workforce, where employees feel included and believe their company is committed to their advancement, leads to more innovation, greater retention of top talent and better business results. Clearing a path for women and historically underrepresented groups to join construction is vital to solving some of the industry's greatest challenges, including the labor shortage. However, ensuring career advancement opportunities are fair is critical to retaining a diverse workforce.

In this webinar we'll celebrate the progress we've made, and review the results of a recent construction retention survey that uncovers why women and people of color leave construction.

Topics covered will include:

  • The data around retention statistics in construction.
  • The reasons why women and underrepresented groups are leaving construction.
  • How to apply key learnings to better retain these groups.
