    What is Make the Connection?

    What is the purpose of the Make the Connection Program?

    The purpose of the Make the Connection Program is to strengthen relationships between AGC Members (Make the Connection Allies) and small and minority-owned firms (Make the Connection Champions) by putting into action the value of diversity, equity, and inclusion at AGC networking events


    What is the difference between a Champion and an Ally?

    Make the Connection Champions:

    • Make the Connection Champions are small and minority-owned business owners or representatives seeking to do business and build alongside general and specialty contractors within the AGC Membership.

    Make the Connection Allies:

    • Make the Connection Allies are company presidents, preconstruction managers, business development professionals, or any other professional seeking to support small business development and diversity, equity, and inclusion within our industry.
