The percentage of women in construction hovers between 9 to 10% across the industry, in the field only 3%. The industry is changing – not only the number of women in the field, design, engineering and construction management is increasing, the industry now recognizes that women bring an additional layer of diversity, experience and management style that have innovated and energized an industry known for its traditional male dominance. Construction in general is experiencing shortages in skilled knowledge across the disciplines and women have become now the future of the industry at all levels.

Free and open to the public. AIA & USGBCI CES credits are available.
