Govan Brown is committed to challenging conventions when it comes to building – not only through our services but our approach and partnership philosophy. Our team actively looks at ways to purposefully disrupt conventional approaches and methods in construction in order to better promote diversity and create inclusion for underrepresented groups. Our commitment to expanding supplier diversity is a core pillar in supporting our efforts to drive change in our industry. We strive to be an active ally in bringing diverse trade partners to the forefront as well as by proactively engaging in business initiatives that expand opportunities for underrepresented groups in construction, importantly the Indigenous community. From mentorship to our scholarship programs, which offers support to the next generation of Indigenous and BIPOC construction professionals, we hope to dismantle barriers to success in our industry.
We are hopeful these efforts will lead to the creation of a more inclusive construction community that is more competitive, innovative, and value-driven. We believe representation matters, and this sentiment came to life through a recent partnership with local artists which included a mentee Indigenous artist who identifies as Two-Spirit.
