The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) will celebrate Women in Construction (WIC) Week March 1-7, 2020.
Women in Construction Week is a very important date on the NAWIC calendar. This week helps NAWIC advance its mission to strengthen and amplify the success of women in the construction industry.
The focus of Women in Construction 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. Women in Construction 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 chapters across the nation will celebrate Women in Construction Week with a wide variety of activities. Community service projects, jobsite tours, membership drives, children’s activities, hands-on workshops, fundraisers and school programs are some of the ways local chapters will observe Women in Construction Week. Local chapters are also appealing to their local, state and national representatives to issue official WIC Week proclamations.
