NAWIC - National Association of Women in Construction

The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) originally was founded in 1953 by 16 women working in the construction industry. Knowing that women represented only a small fraction of the construction industry, the founders organized NAWIC to create a support network.

NAWIC has a membership of more than 4,500 and approximately 167 chapters, with chapters in almost every U.S. state. In NAWIC's 55 years of service to its membership, NAWIC has advanced the causes of all women in construction, from tradeswomen to business owners.

 

Women in Concrete Alliance

The objective of the Women in Concrete Alliance (WICA) is to supply information, opportunities, and mentoring to women working in the concrete construction industry. The Advisory Board will direct the momentum of the efforts, keeping the mission centered on positive information that will help women network and be successful. The idea for an ongoing network began with Hanley Wood's Women in Concrete (WIC) event at World of Concrete and the WIC monthly features in Concrete Construction and Concrete Producer magazines. WICA strives to go beyond these efforts and reach women on a continuous basis to create an industry alliance that serves the needs of all women in concrete.
