Ƶ Diversity & Inclusion Forum

Join the Forum Email List Here

Ƶ welcomes all members and chapter staff who have an interest in construction industry diversity & inclusion issues to join the Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Forum. The D&I Forum is an online, email community that enables Ƶ members to connect with each other, keep pace with the latest construction D&I developments, solve problems and share best practices. Participation in the Forum is not a volunteer opportunity and requires no commitment to attend meetings or serve on the D&I Committee. But it ensures prompt notification of such opportunities when they arise.
