TORONTO — DPI Construction Management (DPI) is the first in commercial construction to become an employer partner of the Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion (CCDI), which will help the company make diversity and inclusion an ongoing matter of importance within the industry.
DPI has gone against the grain to build a company that hires the best people for the job regardless of gender, race or sexual orientation. The team’s diversity and inclusive culture has organically grown over 20 years in business, a release from the company states.
“DPI joins our organization as the career landscape in Canada continues to shift and evolve,” said Michael Bach, founder and CEO of the CCDI, in a statement.
“While construction has long been considered a male-dominated industry and occupation, the gender make-up of the DPI team is an encouraging sign of greater gender diversity in the future. We sincerely anticipate the growth of this partnership and opportunities to expand the conversation about inclusion, diversity and equity within the wider sector.”
