Rockford Construction respects and values the characteristics, talents and perspectives that make each person unique. By bringing diverse people together in an inclusive manner, we can better innovate and solve the problems that face our world. We are committed to creating and fostering a team, partners and strategies that reflect this purpose.
Trade Contractors – Diversity/Inclusion
Rockford Construction aims to maximize opportunities for minority-, women-, and veteran-owned firms (MWVBE). We launched Dimensions, a program designed to support a local, diverse and entrepreneurial group of trades, in 2017. Dimensions provides support to MWVBE commercial trade contractors by offering exposure to the tools and processes necessary to build their businesses while working toward long-term stability. Rockford also provides opportunities to bid and perform on local projects.
In 2021, we’ll launch our next cohort of Dimensions participants focused on the Detroit area. We will continue to expand on our Detroit relationships and work to improve minority trade contractor growth in the region.
