As a member of the Barton Malow Family of Companies, LIFTbuild® is committed to fostering a culture where all team members are welcomed, valued, fully utilized, and have fair opportunities to share their thoughts, ideas, and concepts. Our Diversity + Inclusion Community strives to maintain this culture by promoting awareness, providing learning opportunities, connecting team members through themed network groups (multicultural exploration, parents/caregivers, young professionals), and embedding it into our talent acquisition and our business practices.

A Commitment to Supplier Diversity

Our Community Engagement Program aims to maximize opportunities for minority, women, and veteran-owned firms (MWVBE) to do business with us through Supplier Diversity Initiatives that include:

  • Centralizing the process for engaging diverse suppliers
  • Strengthening relationships with suppliers by maximizing local engagement opportunities throughout the Barton Malow Family of Companies
  • Heightening awareness with Clients who are committed to Diversity + Inclusion
  • Increasing spend with diverse suppliers on projects and in-house purchases

Our initiatives start with being intentional about using MWVBE firms, regardless of client requirements. Our Community Engagement team works directly with procurement and project teams across the company to implement strategies that increase our success rates of business inclusion through: outreach, continuous notification, and updates of bid packages, contractor shark tank meetings, prequalification, assistance, and more.

Workforce Development + Inclusion

LIFTbuild®, aligned with Barton Malow’s Community Engagement Program, takes things a step further with a proactive approach to building a strong, diverse workforce through Workforce Development + Inclusion Initiatives set to:

  • Create opportunities that increase diversity and inclusion of women and minorities in the skilled trades
  • Strengthen relationships with government, workforce and educational partners focused on career tech education (CTE) and on-the-job training
  • Create a pathway for job seekers to connect with subcontractors seeking to fill skilled trades positions on our projects
  • Provide paid training through the Barton Malow Bootcamp pre-apprenticeship program
