With skilled labor shortage being a constant hurdle, exploring options to include diversity in construction industry is a must. But the battle is very much uphill.
The construction industry is no stranger to the generation gap in today’s workforce. As Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials, and Generation Y, with their varying strengths, upbringings and communication styles are all squeezed onto a construction site, unique challenges are presented.
Historically, it hasn’t been easy for women climbing career ladders in the architecture and construction industries, but leaps are being made and successes celebrated as we move towards an equitable and successful future.
