The construction industry has historically been viewed as a male-dominated field, but women are breaking down barriers and jackhammering their way into the opportunity-filled construction industry.

 

Higher Income Potential: On average, women who work construction and trade careers earn up to 30% more than traditional female-dominated careers. 

Leadership Opportunities: Improve team performance, contribute fresh perspectives, advance careers, and have room for growth.

There is a Labor Shortage: The need for construction workers is expected to grow on average with 1,726 jobs annually through 2028.

Feeling of Achievement: Women in construction report one of the best feelings they have is the pride that comes from building something from the ground up. 

Practical Skills: The skills you learn in a construction career, like team building, managing a complex project, and working with technology and tools, can be applied to other sectors and careers as well.
