Amidst the construction industry’s significant labor shortage, initiatives like the Pride Construction Coalition play a crucial role in ensuring that every worker feels valued and respected in their professional environment.

The Pride Construction Coalition hosts regular networking events, welcoming all industry professionals to connect and support each other. These gatherings foster camaraderie and solidarity within the construction community.

With only one other organization of its kind in the country, the Pride Construction Coalition has ambitious plans for expansion. Founder Tommy Whitehead aims to expand the coalition statewide, championing inclusivity and diversity in construction.

Earlier this month, the coalition organized an event focused on women in construction, highlighting the contributions and achievements of female professionals in the field. To learn more about upcoming events and initiatives, interested individuals can visit the Pride Construction Coalition’s website.

Acknowledging the urgent need for more workers in 2024—projected at 500,000—the coalition actively fosters a safe and respectful workplace. With plans to expand across Florida, the Pride Construction Coalition aims to shape Tampa Bay’s construction scene.
