Hartford, CT – Robinson+Cole has committed to the Culture of CARE, an initiative created in partnership between the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) and the AGC of Washington to advance the construction industry as the industry of choice for diverse and talented workers by building inclusive work environments in construction firms nationwide.
To demonstrate its commitment, Robinson+Cole has signed a pledge to ensure its workplaces are free from harassment, hazing, and bullying.
Culture of CARE is built on four foundation principles:
C – Commit to hire and pay based on skill and experience regardless of ability, age, ethnicity, gender identity, nationality, race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation;
A – Attract prospective employees by creating inclusive workplaces that are free from harassment, hazing, and bullying;
R – Retain high-performing employees by identifying and removing barriers to advancement;
E – Empower every employee to promote a culture of diversity and inclusion.
“We are proud to join our clients and colleagues in the construction industry to build a culture that is diverse, safe, welcoming and inclusive for all,” said Gregory R. Faulkner, chair of the construction law group at Robinson & Cole LLP and board director of the AGC of Connecticut.
Committing to the Culture of CARE is the most recent in a number of steps Robinson+Cole has taken in its ongoing efforts to promote diversity and inclusion and challenge racial and social inequities.
