ASCE is one of 17 technical organizations collaborating on a survey to better understand the diversity of the built environment and the experiences of people working in the built environment in the United States.

The 2021 Built Environment Social Equity Survey, organized by the National Institute of Building Sciences, is intended for people in the United States who are involved in real estate, design, construction, and/or maintenance of the built environment.

ASCE member input will play a critical role in informing future efforts to improve social equity in the built environment. Members of other societies are also participating in the survey, including:

National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS)
American Institute of Architects (AIA)
Building Owners and Managers Association International (BOMA International)
Construction Management Association of America (CMAA)
Construction Specifications Institute (CSI)
Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA)
Energy & Environmental Building Alliance (EEBA)
Green Building Initiative (GBI)
Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM®)
International Code Council (ICC)
International Institute of Building Enclosure Consultants (IIBEC)
New Buildings Institute (NBI)
Regional Hispanic Contractors Association (RHCA)
RMC Research & Education Foundation
U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC)

The survey takes 5-7 minutes to complete. Those who participate will be entered in a drawing for one of four $250 Amazon gift cards.

Responses will be anonymous when collected and when shared with ASCE and other participating organizations.

The survey closes April 7.
