Celebrating Women in Construction Week 2018
After many years of creating a movement in which to recognize Nationally recognize Women in History’s Achievements Congress declared March as National Women’s History Month in perpetuity in 1987. A special Presidential Proclamation is issued every year which honors the extraordinary achievements of American women.
Consequently and thanks to this movement and declaration we also have the opportunity to recognize and celebrate Women in Construction (WIC) week every year in March! The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) was founded in Fort Worth, Texas in 1955, it is an international association serving 125 chapters in the United States. NAWIC also has affiliates in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Kingdom.
Rutkoski Fencing is proud to acknowledge and celebrate all the women in the construction work force! NAWIC’s mission is to enhance the success of women in the construction industry.
“The National Association of Women in Construction is committed to enhancing the success of all women in construction – not just those who are NAWIC members,” says Connie Leipard, the immediate past-president of NAWIC. “We accomplish this through educational opportunities, networking, and community/industry service projects. If you are a woman employed in any area of the construction industry, we welcome you to join us!”
“The focus of WIC Week is to highlight women as a visible component of the construction industry. It is also a time for local chapters to give back to their communities. WIC Week provides an occasion for NAWIC’s thousands of members across the country to raise awareness of the opportunities available for women in the construction industry and to emphasize the growing role of women in the industry.”
