Diversity & Inclusion in the Construction Industry WITH brooke mcnally
Tuesday, april 14th, 2020 Emerald Queen Hotel & Casino Pacific rim vip room 5:30pm - 7:30pm
Surveys of women and LGBTQ workers in the construction industry (including engineers, architects, and specialty trades) consistently show that these employees are frequently targeted with harassment and discrimination by their co-workers. Changing these workplace dynamics and company culture takes a real intention on the part of business owners and managers. It’s one thing to hire women, multi-ethic and LGBTQ employees, but it takes intentionality to change the company culture so those people feel welcome and thrive in that work environment. Please join us as Brooke McNally comes to share with us about this very issue. Brooke's construction career spans 30 years and a large cross-section of project types. She began her career as a residential carpenter and is now a Project Executive with Absher Construction. Brooke’s experience as a transgender woman in a leadership role in the construction industry has given her a unique perspective on what diversity and inclusion look like.
