The construction is slowly seeing some change. As we celebrate the annual Women in Construction Week (WiC), which takes place March 5-11, 2023, organized by the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC), let’s take a look at the advances being made by women of all ages and backgrounds in the industry. This year’s theme for WiC is “Many Paths, One Mission.”
More women than ever before work in construction
There are 1.28 million workers in the construction industry who are women, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), occupying a variety of job roles. Ten years ago, in 2013, there were only 840,000, which is an increase of 52.9 percent.
