Forum To Highlight Successes On Diversity In Construction
The building of the $2.5 billion Encore Boston Harbor casino saw more women work on the job site than any other construction project in Massachusetts history.
Of the roughly 7,000 workers on the project, 452 were tradeswomen.
Next week, the Massachusetts Gaming Commission is hosting a forum and issuing a report on diversity at construction job sites.
WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Jill Griffin, the gaming commission’s Director of Workforce, Diversity, and Supplier Development.
