The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) was founded in 1953 as Women in Construction of Fort Worth, Texas. Seeing that women represented only a fraction of the construction industry workforce, 16 women founded NAWIC to create a support network for others like themselves. Women in Construction of Fort Worth was so successful that it gained its national charter in 1955 and became the National Association of Women in Construction. Today, NAWIC provides its members with opportunities for professional development, education, networking, leadership training, public service and more.
Core Purpose: To strengthen and amplify the success of women in the construction industry.
Mission Statement: The association committed to championing women to impact the direction of the construction industry. NAWIC provides education, community and advocacy for women.
Team Rubicon is a nonprofit organization committed to supporting communities impacted by disasters. They do this by uniting the skills and experience of military veterans with first responders (and other volunteers) to rapidly deploy emergency response teams to impacted communities at no cost to members of those communities.
This year, NAWIC is teaming up with Team Rubicon to raise funds for these disaster response efforts as a part of our 65th Annual Conference efforts.
