Special report: How racism impacts construction

Read the full story at Construction Dive.

From nooses hung on display in work areas, to racist graffiti spewing hate, there have been nearly 20 reported incidents of blatant racism on construction sites this year.

But construction workers of color say these acts, while recently spotlighted in news coverage, are nothing new in the industry. They are just more examples of the types of racist incidents in construction that they have dealt with for their entire careers.

In this six-part series, Construction Dive takes a deep look into discrimination’s toll on the industry. Pieces include a timeline documenting the highest-profile events, an article on racism’s impact on a contractor’s bottom line, an unflinching look at how it affects workers and a breakdown of the types of systemic racism that plague the industry.
