Brasfield & Gorrie Observes Women in Construction Week

Brasfield & Gorrie joined with the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) in observing Women in Construction Week, March 5-11, 2017.

Established by NAWIC, the week aims to highlight women as a visible component of the construction industry, to raise awareness of the opportunities available for women in construction and to emphasize the growing role of women in the industry.

Brasfield & Gorrie is committed to building strength through diversity and inclusion in its company, people, partnerships, and communities. Women have played key roles in Brasfield & Gorrie since its inception. In fact, one of the company’s five founders, Imogene Powell, served as an early pioneer among women in the industry.

As part of the company’s observation of Women in Construction Week, Brasfield & Gorrie hosted events and activities at its regional offices. Several Brasfield & Gorrie offices hosted roundtable discussions to foster dialogue on important issues and provide forums to discuss opportunities relevant to women in the construction industry. These forums engaged members of the company’s Women’s Operational Resource Group, including project managers, estimators, operations managers, and virtual design and construction professionals, among other leaders. Other regional offices joined with community partners to support Women in Construction Week events.

Brasfield & Gorrie also joined with other organizations in sponsoring the NAWIC Southeast Region Forum, held March 31–April 1, 2017, in Birmingham, Ala.
