Our Thoughts in a Time of National Reflection on Equality and Racism

We are deeply saddened by the repetitive deaths that have greatly amplified the cries of racial disparity in our nation. We are committed to being part of the work that needs to be done to become the nation we envision that embraces diversity as its greatest strength.

In our industry, we design, we build, we learn, we improve, and then the cycle begins again. It is through this lens that we see a path forward for constructing inclusive communities and a nation of acceptance. There is much to build upon. My fellow leaders at GBI, as well as our experts, members, staff, and colleagues, look forward to building on our commitment to respect and inclusion by increasing our understanding of additional opportunities to move forward toward greater diversity, equity, and inclusion in our communities.

We are committed to working together to create a nation of acceptance and fairness for all.
