MS Teams Meeting
LCI Cascadia-Portland CoP

Many of us have accepted the concept of Safety as a Value – something that is beyond a priority. Is “Respect for People” a similar Value? Please join our Portland Community of Practice for an interactive discussion on how these concepts are evolving within the construction industry and the steps each of us can take to promote them. Participants will lead the conversation as we consider how we respect the craft workers that make our industry possible as well as the design and management teams that support them. You are sure to come away with an enhanced appreciation for the importance of Respect for People as a Value.
