CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Carolinas AGC (CAGC) is excited to bring to the construction industry a new podcast series with a focus on ensuring inclusive workplaces and safety. CAGC's Buildercast podcast series is part of a larger effort to embrace and improve diversity within the construction industry.
"Our industry and our members are taking the opportunity to lead the way to attract workers from all backgrounds and generations to create open, prosperous and sustainable workplaces," said Betsy Bailey, Diversity and Inclusion Liaison and NC Government Relations Director for Carolinas AGC. "The Buildercast series is one of many outlets CAGC is leveraging to ensure the construction industry is diverse, safe, welcoming and inclusive for all."
To date, CAGC has released three episodes in this Diversity & Inclusion podcast series:
This series was inspired by a CAGC Member Talk forum, "Construction Cares: Ensuring an Inclusive Workplace for Strong Safety and Communications Efforts" held on June 5, 2020. The forum featured industry leaders and CAGC member contractors from North Carolina and South Carolina who discussed their own workplace inclusivity, safety and communication efforts.
CAGC will continue to work with industry leaders to publish these timely, applicable podcasts that work to explore best practices and solutions. CAGC will also continue to push the Culture of CARE campaign – an initiative signed by CAGC, and created in partnership between AGC of America and AGC of Washington to advance the construction industry as the industry of choice for diverse and talented workers by building inclusive work environments in construction firms nationwide.
Carolinas AGC is the construction industry association in the Carolinas, bringing value to our thousands of members through networking, government relations, job leads, meetings with owners/designers, and education and training involving such issues as safety and open shop, and community development.
