Why Our Partners Work With Us

“At Skanska, ‘Care for Life’ and ‘Be Better Together’ are two of our most important values. Our KNOW THE LINE training helps us advance respect, inclusion, and safety—both physical and psychological—in the workplace. Our goal is to safeguard a culture where all our people feel included, respected, and safe to do their jobs the best they can each and every day.

In parallel, respect, inclusion, safety, and equity are the pillars needed in today’s construction environment if we want to remain sustainable. RISE UP training sets the table for the conversations that must take place to ensure our words and behaviors are embedded into the culture. That’s why we work with like-minded program partner ANEW, to further RISE UP training, pre-apprenticeship programs, and other activities that benefit our local people, the community and society as a whole.”


”General, ”Skanska

“ANEW is a great partner for us in helping to develop our workforce of the future, providing opportunities for underrepresented communities to find a career in construction. Their Pre-apprenticeship programs consistently turn out high quality, ambitious workers who are important contributors on our job-sites.”


”Vice, ”Hoffman

“At GLY, a key part of our mission is investing in the social and economic sustainability of our region. This goes hand in hand with supporting organizations like ANEW, which help build a thriving pipeline of diverse talent in our industry. We highly value this partnership because of the amazing programming, financial support and employment navigation offered to students seeking a rewarding career in construction. ANEW is our future, and we are proud to come alongside the men and women who make this such a great organization!”



“At Sellen, we recognize the need to create opportunities for those underrepresented at all roles in our industry, and we believe there is room in the trades for everyone. If we lean into creating a more equitable environment for all people, our industry will benefit from a stronger, more diverse workforce. Supporting ANEW and the vital programs they provide is one way Sellen is helping to drive this change. ANEW is powerful, thorough, and dedicated to their mission, and we’re seeing gains through their work.”


”Sellen’s, ”Sellen

Over the past 40 years, ANEW has played an important role in developing diversity in the mechanical industry by creating opportunity for women and people of color to learn building trade fundamentals.  ANEW has been a valuable resource for Hermanson and we appreciate the quality and caliber of candidates ready to engage and work hard.
