Subcommittee Role, Vision and Structure
The Construction Diversity and Inclusion Subcontracting Subcommittee convenes minority/majority contractors, developers, assistance groups, bonding agents, owners and financial institutions as needed to increase the utilization of MBE firms on major projects.
The subcommittee may examine existing programs to recommend enhancements and/or suggest new programs.
Our Subcontracting Subcommittee, co-chaired by Ariane Kirkpatrick of The AKA Team, and Scott Orr of Gilbane Construction, has been facilitating an active group of stakeholders to develop business pipelines for this phase of Construction Diversity and Inclusion effort.
Connect: Buy Local... Business Opportunities
Supporting the success of subcontractors, both short- and long-term, is a key area of focus for the Subcontracting Subcommittee by fleshing out the characteristics, requirements, registrations and certifications that are required at different levels of entry into the construction industry.
The Subcontracting Subcommittee also works to create access points that will be an important guideline for female- minority-owned businesses to both connect and move through the appropriate channels to secure contracts and wealth building opportunities in the construction industry.
