Take the Diversity & Inclusion Assessment
The Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Assessment is an online tool developed specifically for firms in the construction industry to measure and improve the management of their current diversity & inclusion programs, policies, and practices. Your company will be asked to answer performance-based questions in four key areas of diversity and inclusion:
• Vendors (Subcontractors/Suppliers)
Unsure of how to use the Diversity & Inclusion Assessment?
Listen to this webinar recording titled, “Using the Diversity & Inclusion Assessment to Drive Your Strategic Efforts” to learn more about the Diversity & Inclusion Assessment, how to utilize key features of the platform, and leverage your company’s results to drive your strategic diversity & inclusion efforts forward.
Upon completion of the Assessment, companies will be able to analyze results, measure progress, and download best practice resources to expand D&I efforts. As the Assessment becomes widely used, companies will also be able to benchmark their practices against other construction firms. For more information about the Assessment, please read the FAQ’s.
Access to the D&I Assessment is 100% free for AGC members. Non-members take the Assessment for free, but must purchase access to the benchmarking results and best practices for $325 via the AGC Store.
