The annual Women in Construction Week takes place March 6-12. It is a time to highlight all of the great initiatives and work of women within the industry, underscoring the opportunities that are available to women in construction. Women in Construction Week traces the history of women in construction, their challenges and the ways they've been able to overcome them. The holiday is observed to appreciate the women who have taken the bold step to enter the construction industry, and also to encourage those willing to make similar commitments.
