Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

BILD Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Statement

Members of the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) create communities for diverse and vibrant populations. We believe in order to meet the real estate needs of all GTA residents, to create an industry that is socially responsible, sustainable and successful, it is essential to have a workforce that reflects this diversity.

We recognize differences in race, age, gender, sexual orientation, cultural background, physical and mental ability bring richness to our collective work and living environments. Inclusiveness and equity fuel innovation and allow us to create communities that meet the needs of all GTA residents.

BILD resolves to proactively reduce the causes of workplace racism by facilitating awareness and education in the industry and work to promote diversity, equity and inclusion. We stand by a zero-tolerance policy against discrimination, racism or oppression in any form in our industry, workplaces or jobsites.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Playbook

BILD’s People and Culture Committee has developed a comprehensive playbook for both individuals and companies to use on their diversity, equity and inclusion journey as they move from awareness to action to leadership. The Playbook gives practical advice on how to develop a DE&I strategy and how to assess existing programs and take them to the next level.
