Associated General Contractors of Minnesota announced the addition of Yolanda Y. McIntosh to its staff. Filling a newly-created director of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) position with the state's largest and longest-established commercial construction trade association, McIntosh will lead efforts in building more intentional and inclusive initiatives to assist member contractors in establishing equity in business cultures and providing greater opportunity for diverse populations in the commercial construction industry.
