The third annual Construction Inclusion Week, which begins Oct. 16 and runs through Oct. 20, has doubled in size and expanded globally, according to Construction Dive. The event aims to enhance workforce diversity and jobsite safety and to eliminate discrimination on construction sites. Registrations have grown from 2,345 companies in 2022 to over 5,000 in 2023, drawing participants from all U.S. states, Puerto Rico, Canada, the United Arab Emirates, Peru, India, and Ghana. 

This year’s event is set to reach more than 750,000 workers on 6,500 project sites nationwide, addressing issues such as discrimination and hateful actions on jobsites, fostering open dialogue, and encouraging a change in workplace culture.

The event will have a theme around different topics each day:

  • Commitment and accountability (Monday).
  • Belonging (Tuesday).
  • Supplier diversity (Wednesday).
  • Workplace culture (Thursday).
  • Community engagement (Friday).

Firms can access free materials and content to increase their focus on diversity, equity and inclusion on CIW’s website. Video content will also be shared online and via social media throughout the week.
