NEW YORK, NY – March 3, 2019 – Today marks the start of Women in Construction Week, a week dedicated to highlighting women as a vital component of the construction industry. Women in Construction Week also raises awareness of the opportunities available to women within the industry and emphasizes the growing role of women in construction.
“Construction has less than 9% of women working in the industry, in the actual trades, it is only 3%.,” says Dove Sifers-Putman, CBT, the president of the National Association of Women in Construction. “WIC Week is a time to help promote women in the industry and help make the community aware that women can have a career in construction,” says Sifers-Putman.
In celebration of Women in Construction Week, Pizzarotti will be spotlighting the talented women that we work with. These women break barriers each and every day. We are proud to have them on our team and grateful for all their hard work and dedication.
