Diversity & Inclusion

ABC demonstrates its commitment to shaping an industry that is welcoming to all people—where employees and suppliers are limited only by their own potential—by hosting an annual Diversity & Inclusion Summit, recognizing member leadership through the National Diversity Excellence Awards and creating Diversity Resource Groups. DRGs bring people with common interests and characteristics together to help articulate, promote and support the needs of certain constituencies. Each group has a leader who is dedicated construction industry’s workforce, workplace and marketplace from the perspective of a single demographic faction, and participation is open to all members of ABC.  

Careers in Construction Day

DSC_5209ABC Central Texas and its members host an annual Careers in Construction Day. Students from area high schools participate in hands-on activities designed to introduce them to the many careers available in construction.
