2024 Construction Inclusion Speaker Submission Instructions

Do you have an amazing idea for the 2024 AMCA Construction Inclusion Conference?

Share your specialized knowledge, insights, research, and experience in a workshop or panel – the AMCA’s call for speakers is open now through May 10th!

The 2024 AMCA Construction Inclusion Conference will be held on October 16, 2024, in Phoenix, Arizona at the National Bank of Arizona Conference Center, 6001 North 24th Street. Nationally, Construction Inclusion Week is October 14-18, 2024, to champion diversity, equity, and inclusion in the construction industry.  It is a week of awareness, education, and action.  The AMCA Construction Inclusion Conference is to bring awareness and education to project managers, estimators, craft leadership, business development personnel, business owners, and community members so that they can implement inclusive efforts in their work.

The themes for Construction Inclusion Week can be found at www.constructioninclusionweek.com.  AMCA is accepting proposals for presentations addressing any of the five themes of the national Construction Inclusion Week:

  1. Leadership commitment and accountability

  2. Creating a culture of inclusion and belonging

  3. Supplier diversity

  4. Establishing a positive workplace culture

  5. Community engagement

This is the third year that AMCA has hosted this half-day training conference. The conference format had been 3-4 general sessions with one keynote. We may adjust the format and timing based on the speakers needs and depth of the content. Past speakers and topics can be seen on https://amcaaz.com/contents/conference-2024/.

We are looking for abstracts that can apply to the construction industry.  Sessions should provide meaningful insight and implementable strategies for inclusive leadership.  Presentation styles which are engaging and include participation by the audience are encouraged.

We are looking for presenters who can bring a fresh perspective and share captivating content that will empower the audience to lead by example at work.
