GBCA joins the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) in celebrating Women in Construction (WIC) Week March 4-10, 2018. NAWIC’s mission is to enhance the success of women in the construction industry.

“The National Association of Women in Construction is committed to enhancing the success of all women in construction – not just those who are NAWIC members,” says Connie Leipard, the immediate past-president of NAWIC. “We accomplish this through educational opportunities, networking, and community/industry service projects. If you are a woman employed in any area of the construction industry, we welcome you to join us!”

The focus of WIC Week is to highlight women as a visible component of the construction industry. It is also a time for local chapters to give back to their communities. WIC Week provides an occasion for NAWIC’s thousands of members across the country to raise awareness of the opportunities available for women in the construction industry and to emphasize the growing role of women in the industry.

NAWIC’s Philadelphia Chapter 145 will celebrate WIC Week through several activities, including a proclamation from the City of Philadelphia, a networking event with the American Society of Professional Estimators, and a Wear Red Social Media Blast campaign on Friday, March 9.
