Currently the focus at Shell Roofing Solutions has been on educating our team on diversity and inclusion. We are preparing our team for the next level of potential hires. We have reached out to the National Diversity Coalition for advice and education. I chair the Diversity and Inclusion Committee for the NRCA. It is imperative that we develop this strategy to ensure that we are in line with companies striving to do the same.
