Why is it important to support diversity and inclusion?
"It’s becoming increasingly well documented that more diverse teams perform better financially. If we do not make our industry genuinely more attractive to women and other minority groups then organisations within construction are missing out on an opportunity to be stronger, better, and make more money. If you don’t actively pursue equality across our industry because you’re a good human, at least do it for the sustainability and profitability of the businesses you work for, and the success of the projects you work on".
