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.
