Women of the Construction Industry

The demand for workers in the A.C.E industry is currently higher than it has ever been. Filling the gaps, increasing labor, and changing perceptions to make the industry an attractive career option for the entire population is critical. It’s not just about gender. It’s about company culture, values, and different ways of problem-solving.

This event focuses on women in the industry who are progressing and finding ways to support each other through mentorship and advocacy. Women make up only 9.1% of the industry's workforce.
