Fort Worth, TX — The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC), the leading professional association for women in the construction industry, is excited to celebrate the 24th Annual Women in Construction Week March 6-12, 2022.
Women in Construction (WIC) Week raises awareness and celebrates the work of women in the  construction industry across the country. NAWIC founded WIC Week in 1998 to continue its mission of strengthening and amplifying the success of women in the industry. This year’s theme is ‘Envision Equity.’
“WIC Week gives chapters nationwide the opportunity to shine a bright light on the construction industry and women’s very important place in it,” said Executive Director Crissy Ingram. “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.”
“[WIC Week is vital to] bringing awareness to the great success women are having in every aspect of the industry,” said National President Doreen Bartoldus. “It will also hopefully influence the next generation to join our ranks after seeing construction can be a great career for women.”
Chapters and companies across the country are putting on a wide variety of events to commemorate the week. To learn more about WIC Week and to find events in your area here.
