AEC Workforce Diversity Hasn’t Budged Much
The National Institute of Building Sciences shared results from its second biannual Social Equity Survey. But with far fewer responses than last time, the data are hard to interpret.
The diversity of the AEC sector hasn’t shown much progress in two years, according to the second Social Equity in the Built Environment Workforce Survey. But the survey, conducted by the nonprofit National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS), had far fewer respondents in 2023 than in 2021, complicating efforts to compare data over time.
After hosting a social equity roundtable in 2020, NIBS decided to administer the biannual, sector-wide survey, designed in partnership with Avenue M, to better understand the workforce demographics of the building industry and inform social equity initiatives.
