The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) founded Women in Construction Week in 1998 to further its mission of strengthening and amplifying the success of women in an underrepresented industry. Each year, Women in Construction Week takes place during the first full week in March.
Women in Construction Week aims to help raise awareness of the lack of women in the field and works to emphasize the growing role of women in the industry. The annual event will take place from March 6 to March 12, 2022 but the initiative to attract women to the industry should be an endless pursuit. See this article for some latest statistics and discussion on the subject.
As a successful female-owned business, Kaufman Search and Consulting particularly relates to the celebration. The founder and CEO Stephanie Kaufman comes with 20 years of experience as an executive search recruiter, including a decade in construction, garnered through working with a variety of organisations in the construction industry. She champions the cause of supporting women in the industry on a daily basis.
