AnchorBreakerGoogle PodcastsPocketCastsRadio PublicSpotify

We’re all about creating opportunities for everyone.
Sure, you probably think we mean the people are already doing it. You know, the folks already getting the jobs and opportunities that lead to success and community involvement. And you’re right: those people deserve their fair chance!
But we also think that everybody benefits when more people get opportunities in a diverse community. That’s because when all voices are heard and all ideas considered, it creates more opportunities for everyone. Diversity is not just about leveling the playing field; it’s about making your community more robust as a whole!
And our guest in our 4th Episode of Season 04 of Thriving in Construction, The Podcast, is someone who fights for the rights of Hispanics and black minority communities. She’s no other than Dr. Barbara Sharief, with 13 years of experience in office as City Commissioner, Mayor, and President of counties.
I can’t help but quote Dr. Barbara’s words, “So for me, in my mind, I’m always saying I can’t fail, I can’t fail. Failure is not an option. Because I’m representing women and minorities, I’m representing on a level where people expect failure and can’t fail.” Dr. Barbara Sharief
