Add to Calendar

HYBRID MEETING: Please register to join us in-person at the Seattle AGC building (1200 Westlake Avenue N., second-floor Conference Center). For those of you who would like to join virtually, please use this MS Teams link.

Culture of CARE supports construction employers who are improving safety, productivity and retention of skilled tradespeople through more diverse & inclusive workplaces. Each quarter, we convene a forum to share best practices and deliver useful tools and resources aimed at helping companies reach their diversity and inclusion goals.

This summer’s Culture of CARE Forum focuses on DEI data and analytics; answering the big questions of how to measure success under the umbrella of diversity and inclusion, and the dos and don’ts of data tracking and analysis.

We welcome two experts in the field to shed some light on this important topic. Veronica Smith, a DEI data measurement specialist who will share what works, and what doesn’t when tackling DEI data, and Lindsay Jackson, a DEI organizational leader who is actively designing platforms to help companies implement DEI in ways that are evidence-based, feasible, and affordable.
