This week, the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) and various other industry organizations celebrate, educate, and promote the role of women in the construction industry with Women in Construction Week, or WIC Week.
The theme of this year’s WIC Week is “Envision Equity,” which seeks to raise awareness of opportunities for women to enjoy a wide range of roles in the construction industry, from tradeswomen and project managers to administrative positions.
To further commemorate the occasion, Fixr.com released a report that compiled data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and interviews from key players to illustrate how women have broken down barriers in the industry. Plus, several women and home building companies share their thoughts, opinions, and experiences on where strides have been made and what else can still be done.
