Guam Chapter 381 of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) will celebrate Women in Construction (WIC) Week March 6-12, 2016.
“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 NAWIC Guam Chapter 381 President Jessica Barrett. “Our organization accomplishes this through educational opportunities, networking, and community/industry service projects. If you are a woman employed in any area of the construction industry on Guam, 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. A proclamation signing by the Office of the Governor of Guam to celebrate WIC Week on Guam is set for Friday, March 4, 2016.
“There are more than one million women employed in the construction industry. Ten percent of these women are administrative specialists, general contractors, subcontractors, trades people, or professionals, are vital to the construction process,” says Barrett. “WIC Week brings attention to the industry and encourages women to realize that construction is a viable, profitable career field.”
