It is extremely important in today’s market to encourage diversity and advancement in the construction industry, including gender diversity, particularly as our industry faces labor shortages and technological advances. At the national and local level, NAWIC strives to create training, development, advancement opportunities, and support for women in this industry, including attracting new women to our field.
Recent trends in business, industry, finance, and society have made it imperative that we act now to engage and retain women in various positions and levels in the construction industry, to avert workforce crises and create more diverse, smarter, more efficient project teams. One of NAWIC’s core goals and strategies is to give young women an early view into the world of construction, and to support those already in the field with additional training and development opportunities, that will help leverage the talent needed to meet the workforce demands of the industry over the next several years and decades.
Our NAWIC membership has receded over the past several years. This year, the goal of Chapter #156 is to engage, re-engage, and reach women in all positions, levels, careers, and areas of the construction industry, and bring them together for training, business development, professional development, service, and support to help them perform in their current positions and realize their career goals. In light of this goal, we have created new Corporate Sponsorship Levels to support women in their professional growth, as well as to encourage them to mentor and engage the next generation of the workforce. NAWIC Chapter #156 is planning several project site tours; software and technology demonstrations; legal, OSHA, and human resources trainings; professional and business development speakers and activities, and many other events for the 2018-2019 year.
We hope you will consider sponsoring NAWIC Chapter #156 through Corporate Sponsorships or sponsoring individual memberships for your employees. Thank you in advance for your support of NAWIC within your own organization and others in others in our local construction industry.
