WIC Week™, or Women in Construction Week™, celebrates, educates and promotes the role of women in the construction industry. NAWIC held the first WIC Week in 1998 and it has grown and expanded each year since. Many of our local chapters hold WIC Week events, which can include making presentations to high school classes, job site tours, luncheons and virtual events. WIC Week helps NAWIC raise awareness of opportunities for women to enjoy a wide range of roles in the construction industry from tradeswomen to project managers to engineering positions and even business owners.
Special new member offer! Six months for just $129!
Construction firms of all sizes and types are encouraged to participate in WIC Week and show support for their female employees and perhaps host an event for women interested in construction careers. Promoting WIC Week on your social media platforms is also highly encouraged.
