Panel Title

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Construction of Affordable Housing

Where and When

Wednesday, April 6 at 9:00am / 75-minute session

Virtual with In-Person Participation Option, Create Affordable Homes, Room #16


Millions of dollars are expended annually in construction of affordable apartments in California. What are the opportunities and challenges of including Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in that effort, including outreach, training, and inclusion of diverse subcontractors? As an industry, how can the development sector identify and solve these impediments to increasing equity and opportunity in construction of new apartments? This session will explore how developers, contractors, advocates, and others can contribute to increasing the participation of BIPOC-owned businesses and workers in the construction and development of affordable housing throughout California.
