Birmingham-based Brasfield & Gorrie’s EQUIP program, an initiative geared toward the development of minority- and women-owned trade contractors, will go virtual beginning Feb. 16.
The program features Brasfield & Gorrie employees leading sessions for firms that are registered for the program.
“One of the key pieces of feedback I receive from small and diverse businesses is the need for more access to relationships and project opportunities with large general contractors,” says Natalie Kelly, Brasfield & Gorrie’s director of corporate responsibility. “I hope EQUIP will meet that need.”
EQUIP launched in 2019 in Birmingham and Atlanta, and the virtual program will expand that to include trade contractors throughout the company’s footprint. The monthly workshops will include topics such as estimating, safety and innovation. Sessions will be accessible online following each event.
“As we continue building strong relationships with small and diverse firms in the industry, it is important that B & G expands the reach of EQUIP,” Kelly says. “The past year prompted the unique opportunity to do so through virtual sessions, and we are excited about the potential to reach even more great firms.”
