Construction work is a viable career option in North Carolina and is projected to be one of the fastest-growing occupations according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (USBLS).
Despite these opportunities, the under-representation of minorities, women, veterans, and disadvantaged individuals in the construction industry is still an issue in North Carolina. To address this, MMCA has created Corporate Engagement/Upward Mobility; a program designed to generate awareness about the career pathways within construction. Training programs and certifications must be pursued by anyone interested, which could pave the way for stable employment. Support such as job coaching, mentorships, and career counseling can also be beneficial for an individual’s success.
To create equal opportunities for those who wish to pursue it, MMCA has launched initiatives such as Corporate Engagement/Upward Mobility to spread awareness of careers in this field. These initiatives promote certification and training programs for potential construction workers and provide support services like job coaching, career counseling, and mentor programs to help them achieve successful employment stability.
MMCA Partners with General Contractors, Local Government Agencies, Non-profits and other Corporate Entities to expand opportunities for Minority, Women Business Enterprises working within the trade.
MMCA is dedicated to improving success of Minority Contractors and Professionals through education, public policy, community service, economic development & business networking opportunities
