IC Diversity

This Charter highlights CIF’s commitment to Diversity and Inclusion in the construction industry and builds on the great work done by the #BuildingEquality campaign.

This charter is available for all CIF members to sign up to and outlines their commitment to advancing diversity and inclusion in their company. By signing up to this charter, members are publicly committing to taking small steps to promote diversity and inclusion in their workplaces and our industry.

The benefits to CIF launching and supporting this campaign are that we will attract and retain the best talent to our industry by actively addressing under-representation.

"Waterford is a very attractive location for Foreign Direct Investment as it is a dynamic city which is very much open for business – the city has a proven track record of attracting investment from start-ups and expanding business, who are hugely supported by Waterford Chamber. The city, county and region offers a young, well educated workforce and is easily accessible for international visitors. Waterford’s quality of life for employees is exceptional as it blends elements of rich cultural heritage with a new and vibrant lifestyle – with new additions such as the Greenway further showcasing the county to not only locals, but visitors from all over Ireland and overseas. The Chamber has been a vital link in welcoming our companies into the local Business Community – helping them not only network, but also gain a sense of community and belonging."
