This week, we’re catching up with Nigel Chiddick, who has been running a series of LinkedIn stories about his experiences with racism in his history in the construction industry, the importance of mentors and relationships, and what it’s like to share your own, very personal life stories with the world on a social media platform.
We talk about:
• How the industry looked when Nigel was starting his career in the 1990s for people of color
• The impact that several meaningful mentors have had on Nigel’s life and career
• How the industry has and has not changed over the years, with regards to opportunities for black and brown people
• Some changes that construction companies can take to help move the conversation forward
