Cultivating Equal Opportunity In Our Economy, and For All
We know that our member contractors share WECA’s values of cultivating equal opportunity for all—this being the key tenet of the merit shop philosophy-- and condemning injustice in all its forms. We all strive for the possibilities of tomorrow, do our best to remain open and responsive to change, and try to make sure our workplaces function as examples for the greater construction industry in promotion of fairness, equality, diversity, and inclusion.
We’re putting together a collection for you of online resources which may be helpful to you as we all work to develop and foster diverse and inclusive workplaces. We will add to this list as we become aware of additional helpful resources.
