Construction Inclusion Week harnesses the collective power of the construction industry to build awareness regarding the need to improve diversity, equity and inclusion in the industry.

To support the observance, ABC serves as an industry affiliate partner, hosting webinars and promoting additional best practices for inclusion, diversity and equity to its 21,000 member companies.

Construction Inclusion Week is an invitation to every member of the 7.5 million construction workforce to unite to advance inclusion, diversity and equity. Work environments must be free of harassment, hate and bigotry of any kind.

Achieving an inclusive, equitable and culturally competent workforce that is welcoming to all people is the essence of the merit shop philosophy, and ABC is proud to be an integral part of this important week.
