About the AGC Diversity Committee

The Greater Houston Region is recognized as having one of the most diverse populations in the United States. For AGC Houston, with this diversity comes the need to grow the strength and capacity of minority and small businesses desiring to be part of the commercial construction industry. In response to this need, and in collaboration with various service providers and public support agencies, General and Specialty Contractor members of AGC Houston have created a committee to address this important opportunity. Contact William Martinez to get involved. 


Our mission is to assess and assist small and historically underutilized trade contractors in increasing their capabilities and to grow their businesses to meet the current and future building needs in the region.
