ANTI-RACISM

Several companies and organizations within the residential and ICI construction industries have created anti-racism campaigns that include resources, policies and practices you can adapt for your organization.

Ellis Don has taken a leadership role in this area. Their Inclusive Diversity web page provides an excellent overview and helpful resources that you can use as a guide for your own organization.

As part of this initiative, Ellis Don has made their Inclusive Diversity online training modules available to the industry at large. This training is completely online and can be accessed 24/7 from any location.
