Dallas, Texas – TDIndustries, in partnership with the Paradigm for Parity℠ coalition, today announced its commitment to achieving gender parity throughout its corporate leadership structure by 2030.
“One of our Core Values is to ‘Celebrate the Power of Individual Differences,’” says CEO Harold MacDowell. “By being a part of the Paradigm for Parity movement, we hope to encourage others in the construction industry to create a culture of diversity and understanding with numerous opportunities to build long, successful careers.”
As part of the partnership, TDIndustries has committed to:
- Eliminating or minimizing unconscious bias in the workplace;
- Significantly increase the number of women in senior operating roles, with the near-term goal of at least 30% representation in all leadership groups;
- Measuring targets and maintaining accountability by providing regular progress reports;
- Basing career progress on business results and performance, rather than physical presence in the office; and
- Providing sponsors, not just mentors, to women well positioned for long-term success.
