Join us on the morning of September 18th for our program “Equity and Social Justice Plan: It’s Effect on Construction and the Workforce”. We will learn how King County’s Equity and Social Justice plan looks to improve the opportunities within the construction industry for people in local communities, how it impacts both owners and construction service firms operating within King County, and how groups are recruiting more people into the craft trades.
Even if you do not currently do business within King County, ESJ plans could come to your county or statewide at some point, and it will benefit you tremendously to hear about the successes and challenges that King County is experiencing within the construction sector.
Specific topics will include:
• An Overview of King County’s Equity and Social Justice (ESJ) Plan
• Integrating ESJ into Capital Delivery and Construction Projects
• ESJ in Action – Construction Labor Agreements
• Apprentice and Non-Traditional Employment for Women (ANEW) and PreApprenticeship Construction Education (PACE) Programs
We will meet at the Brightwater Environmental Education Center, located just off Highway 9 in Woodinville. Breakfast will be available at 7:30am, with program to begin around 8:30am, and concluding with lunch at 12:00pm. Following lunch, a tour of the Brightwater Wastewater Treatment Facility and discussion about its construction will be available if enough attendees are interested.
Cost for the event is free for 2018 NWCCC members, and $299 for non-members. Use the link below to register for this event.
