October 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Where’s the Joy in Construction? Got Work To Do!
There is work to do if we want to make this a welcoming, inclusive industry. Let’s talk about it. We will lead a discussion about the joys that we’ve experienced in our work and the obstacles that stand in the way of joy. Vulnerability has a place in our work days, and it has a place in this session. We believe that focusing on human relationships by sharing our experiences and practicing holding space for each other will lead to more joyful and secure climate change warriors.
Be ready to examine the statement that the modern, American construction industry on these four pillars: capitalism, the patriarchy, white supremacy, and scarcity, believing there’s only one, small pie for all of us. Because we believe tackling our complicity may clear some paths to joy in our field.
Jason and Chris bring very different vantage points to the table and we’re hoping that you will share your thoughts, concerns, and experiences in this discussion with us.
