It is Women in Construction Week/Month!

Women in Construction Week brings attention to the growth of women joining the construction industry. Join Henrico Career and Technical Education as we celebrate women in the construction industry for the entire month of March.

With the decline of new workers joining the trades for the past decades, it is easy to realize the importance of promoting women to join the construction trades.

In the past, it has been assumed that the construction industry was just for men but that has been disproven with the steady growth of women joining the industry. Women have joined into all aspects of the industry from laborers to business owners and are making their presence known and continuing to break new ground and showcase their achievements.

Women in Construction, it’s not just a week. It’s the future of the industry. Learn the skills that allow civilization to exist.
