Diversity Isn’t a Fad: The Growing Opportunity with Dr. Charner Rodgers

A natural teacher and communicator, Dr. Charner Rodgers, shares stories about growing up in the housing industry, gaining respect at a young age as the principal of a contracting company and the growing opportunity for people of color –particularly women.

Associate Professor of Architecture + Construction Science Management at Tuskegee University, an HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities), Dr. Charner Rodgers is a champion in our “Rethinking Labor” working group  where we’re focused on changing the  narrative –it’s a career, not a gig–, enabling mentorships, and fostering diversity + inclusion.

Many thanks to our partners at the University of Denver for their editing and post-production talents, specifically Lija Miller and Lisette Zamora-Galarza.

The University of Denver Franklin L. Burns School of Real Estate and Construction Management, teaches the full life cycle of the built environment. From integrated project leadership skills to a cohesive understanding of the built environment ––experience the only school of its kind!

“Upbeat Party” is brought to you by Scott Holmes, songwriter from Free Music Archive.
