For building professionals, listening to and learning from experts on construction industry podcasts is a key way to grow in the field, explore relevant topics, and get the inside scoop on the latest innovations. The Building Enclosure podcast, called “Enclosure Experts,” recently hosted LP Building Solutions’ Craig Miles, who serves as Vice President, National Sales, OSB Marketing and Planning.
In this short conversation, Miles and Lindsay Lewis, Editor at Building Enclosure, discussed diversity and inclusion in the construction industry. Miles also connects the issue of DEI to sustainability and covers current efforts to increase DEI in the face of widespread labor shortages.
"Our industry, like most places, lacks basic diversity," Miles says. He also notes that, in terms of sustainability, approaches to sustainable homes differ depending on your perspective of solving problems. "More diverse people give us more diverse answers," he adds.
