Program Mission

IBEW Local 103, NECA Greater Boston, and the board members of the Empower DEI Program are committed to dismantling structural racism and sexism within our industry and beyond. The Program aims to significantly increase the number of MBE and WBE signatory electrical contractors across Greater Boston while working directly with those MBE and WBE contractors to ensure they thrive. Through this program, we aim to ensure that we are adopting and investing in best practices and resource-sharing that will help advance diversity, equity, and inclusion within our sector for the benefit of all.

What is the Empower Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Program?

The IBEW Local 103 & NECA Greater Boston Empower DEI Program serves current and aspiring Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and Woman-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) electrical contractors in the union construction industry. Led by a diverse board of experts, contractors, union members, and advisors from throughout the industry, the program provides access, mentorship, connections, training, and business growth opportunities to qualified participants.

The program is creating an intentional set of resources aimed specifically at ensuring the success of MBE and WBE electrical contractor operators who also are lifting up local families and workers by maintaining area employment standards.
