Recipients of this award will be recognized at an Awards Celebration taking place on May 13th 2021.
Award recipients will be recognized for one or more steps they are taking that correspond to the Global Diversity and Inclusion Benchmarks (standards for organizations around the world), as adapted by BuildForce Canada for the Construction Industry.
