Women in Construction (WIC) Week raises awareness and celebrates the work of women in the construction industry across the country. “WIC Week gives chapters nationwide the opportunity to shine a bright light on the construction industry and women’s very important place in it. WIC is also vital in bringing awareness to the great success women are having in every aspect of the industry. There has long been a culture of construction being only for men. If we can get the women who have worked past that barrier out of the shadows and into the spotlight, they can show other women – no matter the age or background – that there countless opportunities for them in the industry. It will also hopefully influence the next generation to join our ranks after seeing construction can be a great career for women.
