How can diversity help
the Canadian construction
I read recently that women tend to apply
for positions when they know a woman
has held the role before. It is a great priv-ilege
to pave the way for others. Overall,
the Canadian construction industry needs
to attract a motivated and talented work-force
since we may be facing a significant
shortfall of workers. Clients are starting to
seek joint accountability with everyone in-volved
in the design, build and lifecycle, so
we need people who are tech-savvy and
used to working collaboratively. The more
we can increase the talent pool by making
construction work accessible and attrac-tive
to women, youth, Indigenous and new
Canadians, the stronger we will be.
What is the best way to
keep in touch?
I look forward to working collaborative-ly
with CCA’s partner associations and oth-er
stakeholders to deliver as much value as
