Tracy Young, Co-Founder of PlanGrid, spoke about Diversity and Women. A couple key take-aways:
- When you look at all at all different industries over time, there is a lack of labor productivity in Construction. The lack of productivity is correlate to the percentage of money spent on investing in new technology.
- Technology is changing how business is done. To illustrate this, Tracy showed a picture of plan storage 10 years ago and contrasted that to drawings now being stored electronically
- Diversity in teams is critical, both for women and other cultures. She showed a picture of a large construction crew, all white men. She said “Were not using all the brains in the world”.
