CONSTRUCTION ALLIES IN ACTION

The Builders Exchange of Michigan believes in equity for all contractors and knows that in the commercial construction industry, there is disparity.

The Construction Allies in Action Initiative challenges Allies to be the agent of generational change by first looking inward and learning how to write best practices for diversity and inclusion into their own company governance.

With the financial support of Allies, eligible MBE/DBE/WBE construction companies will be enrolled in the Minority Business Strong Foundations Program, where Builders Exchange of Michigan will equip them to strategically position themselves for growth and success.

Real change starts from the top.

CONSTRUCTION ALLIES IN ACTION

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.
