Anti Racism Toolkit

Anti-Racism Toolkit  

The fight against racism has taken on a new sense of urgency. It’s a priority issue across North America and in all sectors of the economy, including the construction industry. High-profile incidents of racially motivated violence and harassment aimed at Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) have shone a spotlight on our collective responsibility to take action.

Systemic and lasting change won’t happen overnight, but the journey to racial equality starts with a few steps. The best time to begin is now.
