Empowering a New World of Diverse Leaders in Construction 

Building the next step toward your diversity goals

Gilbane Building Company provides many resources and tools to prepare minority workers for more successful careers, but Confidence is the one thing that tends to hold minority employees back the most. Our Confidence Index not only aids minority voices in getting passed that obstacle, but makes sure they have the tools they need to strive for more through all phases of life.
