Celebrating Women in Construction Week

Why women should pursue construction careers

Women are continuing to make inroads into this traditionally male industry. This year’s Women in Construction Week, created by the National Association of Women in Construction, is just one way to call attention to the growing numbers of women choosing construction careers – and to encourage other women to follow suit.

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, women now represent 11 % of the construction workforce in 2022, up from 9% in 2018.


So what's in it for women?

The path is wide open for women to join this high-growth field, with plenty of opportunity at all levels and positions.

More and more construction executives and industry leaders are recognizing that having women in the workforce – especially in the field – is good for business. In fact, better for business.
