Become an Ally
Become a Construction Ally in Action and contribute to generational change within the commercial construction industry.
Who can become a Construction Ally?
Corporate entities that regularly fund the building and renovation of construction projects. Generational change is not obtained through passivity, but action. Each Ally must be committed to furthering diversity and inclusion within the commercial construction industry through actionable items, transparency, and accountability. Construction Allies will financially support the Strong Foundations Program, giving minority contractors access to practical knowledge courses on building and sustaining their construction business.
- Public statement on your company website that your company is supporting diversity within the workplace and vendor contracts.
- Verify your company’s vendor documents are ensuring equity for all construction contractors.
- Submit letters of recommendation for all Minority Construction Companies who graduate from the Strong Foundations Program.
- Provide a list of MBE/DBE/WBE contractors that you have hired on your projects, which will be published in our December eNewsletter and available on our website in celebration of the impact your company is making in the construction industry.
