WIC Week™, or Women in Construction Week™, celebrates, educates and promotes the role of women in the construction industry. NAWIC held the first WIC Week in 1998 and it has grown and expanded each year since. Many of local chapters hold WIC Week events, which can include making presentations to high school classes, job site tours, luncheons and virtual events.
The theme for this year’s WIC Week is “Envision Equity” which seeks to raise awareness of opportunities for women to enjoy a wide range of roles in the construction industry, from tradeswomen to project managers to administrative positions and even business ownership.
Construction firms of all sizes and types are encouraged to participate in WIC Week and show support for their women employees and perhaps host an event for women interested in construction careers. Promoting WIC Week on your social media platforms is also highly encouraged.
