The Employee Resource Groups have had a real impact. [...] It is good to see people from all around the organization joining in the conversation and some mind-opening shares from people and their lived experiences. It makes me proud when I see Ledcor providing a venue for these important conversations to take place. I have seen small things, like revising inclusive wording in documents and presentations, as a meaningful step in showing progress. Imagine the incredible impact we could have by extending this in the way we recruit diverse teams and reshaping what Ledcor will look like in the future as an open and accessible workplace.
