Zweig Group, a research, publishing, and advisory services resource for the architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry has announced its 2020 ElevateHer™ cohort, a special task force comprised of individuals with a commitment to promote diversity as a means to combat recruiting and retention challenges. This inaugural group will operate as a think tank, developing strategies to help solve the greatest challenge facing the industry, recruiting, and retention of the work force.
All individuals, regardless of age, experience, gender, background, or job role, were welcome and encouraged to apply. The program kicks off with the ElevateHer Class of 2020, a cohort-style annual program designed to define key strategies and provide open-sourced, accessible action plans to tackle diversity and its role in recruiting and retention issues. Results from the 2020 class will be presented at a special ElevateHer Symposium, on September 30, 2020, a pre-conference to Zweig Group’s annual conference Elevate AEC 2020 in Denver, Colorado.
