On June 25th 2020, the CMAA NorCal Chapter hosted its first webinar on Diversity & Inclusion, organized by the Chapter's CODE Committee. 


The CMAA NorCal CODE committee was proud to bring together industry leaders for a town-hall discussion on Diversity and Inclusion.  We heard first hand stories of challenges overcome, direct actions to take to impact your organization, and explored the values & leadership we must bring each day.

Charity Sponsor:

The CMAA NorCal Chapter selected a partner charity, The Construction Industry Workforce Initiative (CIWI), a non-profit whose initiatives are targeted toward young urban adults 18 to 21 years old, and enrolled in a two to four-year college from lower-income households, many that are first generation Bay Area college students. 

We are proud to have donated a total of $6,900, with the CMAA NorCal Chapter Matching $3,450 of contributions.  This money will directly go to supporting 3 students as they complete their mentor training with the San Francisco Mission Hiring Hall.
