The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) will celebrate Women in Construction (WIC) Week March 1-7, 2020. WIC Week serves to strengthen and amplify the success of women in the construction industry. 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.
Construction has less than 9% of women working in the industry, in the actual trades, it is only 3%. NAWIC is an organization of women for women. It builds leaders by offering education, leadership, and professional development at the chapter, regional and national level to all women in the construction industry!
