Become a Construction Ally in Action and contribute to generational change within the commercial construction industry.

Who can become a Construction Ally?

Corporate entities that regularly fund the building and renovation of construction projects. Generational change is not obtained through passivity, but action. Each Ally must be committed to furthering diversity and inclusion within the commercial construction industry through actionable items, transparency, and accountability. Construction Allies will financially support the free Strong Foundations Program, which provides access to practical knowledge courses for underrepresented contractors.
