Black talent working in the AEC Industry

Membership Pledge

We acknowledge there is a lack of equity and inclusion in the AEC industry.

We pledge to undertake the following concrete actions in order to build a more inclusive and just industry for the black community:

  • Eliminate racist policies and practices, moving the conversation from diversity to racial equity.
  • Help close the gender and racial wealth gap by hiring, enabling and supporting minority-owned businesses.
  • Hire, train, retain and promote diverse workers – from entry-level to the C-suite and boardroom.
  • Require, demand and support hiring qualified black as Tier 1 suppliers whenever feasible.
  • Enforce strict goals to use minority suppliers in all our projects.
  • Co-create underserved neighborhoods with community-based black suppliers and developers.
