Core Purpose: To Enhance The Success of Women In The Construction Industry.
Core Values:BELIEVE. PERSERVERE. DARE.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, women comprise about ten percent of the construction work force today. To remain competitive, the industry must continually recruit and train women. Other issues such as pay equity and safety are addressed by NAWIC through committees and round-table discussions. NAWIC members are also personally committed to addressing women’s concerns. Chapter members translate their enthusiasm to different local projects in which they are involved, from building new homes with Habitat for Humanity and renovating historical sites to sponsoring Career Days events in communities and sponsoring camps and educational programming.
