WATSONVILLE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$GVA #BuildBetterTogether–Granite (NYSE:GVA) announced today the release of the first Construction DEI Talks podcast. This new podcast is produced in partnership with Rosendin and is co-hosted by Granite Vice President of Inclusive Diversity, Jorge Quezada; Rosendin Director of Lean Culture, Stephanie Roldan; and Granite Inclusive Diversity Business Partner, Aby Combs.
Quezada joined Granite in 2019 and has been leading the company’s inclusion and diversity initiatives.
“We’ve made a language distinction between ‘diversity and inclusion,’ which may separate the two concepts, and what Granite strives for with ‘inclusive diversity,’ which asks us to be inclusive of all the diversity we have today, tomorrow, and into the future,” he explained. “The new podcast is a chance to take these ideas, examine them in a broader context, and drive conversations that can be part of shaping the industry.”
The podcast, aimed at construction professionals and those interested in the industry, will explore issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion through discussions with company leaders, DEI professionals, and industry visionaries. Episode 1, featuring conversations with Granite President and CEO, Kyle Larkin and Rosendin CEO, Mike Greenawalt, is now available on all major podcast platforms.
“We are excited to help provide a venue for these essential conversations,” said Larkin. “At Granite, we believe in creating a culture that is inclusive and diverse—we think it makes us better as a company and better as an industry.”
Construction DEI Talks will be released monthly and is available on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, TuneIn, and Google Podcasts.
