From March 1-7, ABC celebrated Women in Construction Week, a week that raises awareness and emphasizes the growing role of women in the construction industry. Here is a list of some of the ways ABC and its members demonstrated the success of women in the field: We kicked off a social media campaign ABC National shared quotes and photos of women in the merit shop community and articles with other communications professionals and leaders, so they could post the content on their own social media platforms. All photos and quotes can be found on ABC’s Flickr page. We were featured on local and national media outlets. With letters to the editor and local craft competitions, ABC was able to promote Women in Construction Week in everything from industry magazines to news shows. Examples include: “ Expansive Career, Salary Opportunities for Women in the Construction Sector ” in Construction Citizen “Expansive Career Opps for Women in Construction” in Commercial Construction & Renovation Magazine “Readers React: Women Should Consider Construction Jobs” in the Morning Call “The San Diego Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors Celebrates Women in Construction Week” on Good Morning San Diego For more information on women in the construction industry, please visit the NAWIC website.
