March is Women's History Month, and March 5-11 is the 25th annual Women in Construction Week.
An initiative of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC), the focus of Women in Construction Week is to highlight women as a viable component of the construction industry. Follow WIC Week coverage from NAWIC. Or follow #WICWeek2023 on LinkedIn.
This year, NGA is highlighting a group of women leading member and industry companies in the glass and fenestration fields. Check out their first-hand experiences on LinkedIn throughout WIC Week. Also find related resources for recruitment and hiring, curated by the NGA.
