Breaking Down Gender Bias: A Toolkit for Construction Business Owners

from Pro Trade Craft

The construction trades have long been one of the industries with the lowest percentage of women in the workforce — as of 2015, fewer than 3 percent of workers in the Construction and Extraction trades were women.

While data on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) workers in the trades is not available, it is clear that many women and LGBTQ workers face bullying and discrimination from sexism, homophobia and transphobia in the workplace.

Our goal in developing this Toolkit is to offer an array of suggestions and solutions to help small business owners and managers break down gender stereotypes and create companies that are inclusive of all genders and sexual orientations.

We recognize that many other kinds of discrimination happen in the workplace — race, class, ethnicity, ability — but this Toolkit is specifically focused on gender discrimination. more
