Executive Order 2016-1 Summary Construction Inclusion Report
The Civil Rights, Inclusion and Opportunity office is responsible for the certification of Detroit Headquartered, Detroit Based, and Small Businesses. We also certify Women, Minority and Start-Up businesses as well as Section Three Certification. We monitor the inclusion of Detroit Based Contractors and Detroit Residents on a multitude of development projects happening throughout the City of Detroit.
The City of Detroit Office of Civil Rights, Inclusion & Opportunity will also monitor the Detroit Skilled Trades Employment Program (STEP) and report it annually on the City of Detroit website to ensure transparency.
The Detroit Skilled Trades Employment Program is designed to ensure that all Detroiters have access to well paying jobs through the skilled trades. In order to achieve that goal, the City of Detroit is partnering with union locals throughout Southeast Michigan to equip more Detroiters with the necessary skills through apprenticeships that lead to lifelong careers.
The Civil Rights, Inclusion and Opportunity is committed to ensuring opportunity for all Detroiters. To achieve this goal, we monitor the inclusion of Detroiters on large construction projects that qualify under Executive Order 2016-1. Below is a summary of the projects we monitor.
