Diversity & Inclusion

Did you know that a recent workplace study found that diverse companies produce 19% more revenue, and companies that have more diverse management teams have again 19% higher revenue due to innovation!? How exceptional is that! InterBuild – LGBTI+ Property and Construction Network is a group of property professionals that raise statistics such as these to drive and advocate inclusivity for LGBTI+ people, allies and friends within the property industry. Growthbuilt were extremely proud to see our Director of Strategy and Business Relations, Melanie Kurzydlo opening the first ever Interbuild education session. Five incredible property professionals Brooke Shaw, Nikki Blair, Daniel Kernaghan, Seamus McCartney and Nicki Elkin lobbied why deeper diversity and inclusion in the workforce results in greater profitability and economic value creation and how LGBTI+ inclusion positively impacts business revenue. We heard real life stories from James Cooper who shared his empowering journey on sexuality in the workplace. As proud supporters of Interbuild, we are honored to stand alongside Melanie and her peers as they continue to empower so many of us, driving real and progressive change throughout Growthbuilt and the industry.
