I have written about this many times. From the production of well-fitting construction safety gear to recruiting leadership at all levels, the need for more action to include women in construction has existed for quite some time. Unfortunately, these issues, and all those in-between, remain. Like so many things in the world that require equity and re-evaluation, the will to make change is simply not strong enough. The good news is that the effort continues.
The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) says, “The focus of Women in Construction (WIC) Week is to highlight women as a viable component of the construction industry. WIC Week also 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.”
