We Stand with Ukraine
The DEI Committee would like to publicly address the invasion on the people of Ukraine. We make this announcement on the platform of basic human rights, and we want to be clear this is not a political stance. There are many women, and men, within our industry with ties to Ukraine. We hereby declare our support to those affected by the atrocities of war and the threat to freedom. While we understand this is a powerful message and may offend some who read this, we stand true in our conviction of being the voice of the voiceless.

Black History Month
We want to give a HUGE thank you for everyone’s collective efforts in celebrating Black History Month in February! To the women who shared their stores: thank you. To our community who listened: thank you. May our joint efforts continue to broaden our mindset through the lens of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Women in Construction (WIC) Week
We have some upcoming features in honor of WIC week with the NRCA. Look for our features on the NRCA social media platforms Monday, March 7th through Friday, March 11th!

REAL Roofing
Our pilot program with REAL Roofing continues and we are so excited for this new venture! What is REAL Roofing? Great question. REAL Roofing is inspired by the global leadership nonprofit, the Center for Creative Leadership. Their proprietary REAL™ framework for equity, diversity, and inclusion is informed by decades of making the world a better place through more effective leadership.

What’s in a name?
Reveal opportunities.
Elevate equity.
Activate diversity.
Lead inclusively.

This program is designed to establish for some, and reinforce for others, the fundamental principles for getting started on DEI initiatives and training. Be on the lookout for more info coming soon!
