#143 - Dr Mark McBride-Wright: Diversity & Inclusion (Brick by Brick #26)
Mental health remains a pressing issue across industries, but the construction industry stands out in an alarming way. 77% of employees say that they experience burnout at their current job. At best, this means increased sick days and reduced productivity in companies. At worst, this means an increased risk of suicide, with the construction industry having a suicide rate 4.5 times higher than the general public. This is unacceptable.
Dr Mark McBride-Wright CEng, MIChemE is a recognised diversity and inclusion leader, who speaks about psychological safety in inclusive teams.
He is founder and Managing Director of EqualEngineers, a company offering a wide array of diversity & inclusion consultancy and training services, as well as creative events.
