The Building Diversity Awards recognizes and awards exemplary contractors, unions and client/owners as well as industry champions who are leading in diversity, equity and inclusion to increase the participation of Black, Indigenous and racialized workers, including youth, women and newcomers within their organizations. Recipients of this award will be recognized at an Awards Celebration taking place on May 10th 2022.

Award recipients will be recognized for one or more steps they are taking that correspond to the Global Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Benchmarks (standards for organizations around the world).

Update your calendar! The festivities will begin at 6pm on May 10th. We will have a special pre-event performance at 7pm live. Awards will begin at 7:30pm.
