This year the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) announced that WIC Week is set for March 3-9, 2019.
The focus is to highlight women as a visible component of the construction industry. It’s also a time for local chapters to give back to their communities. WIC Week provides an occasion for NAWIC’s thousands of members across the country to raise awareness of the opportunities available for women in the construction industry and to emphasize the growing role of women in the industry.
NAWIC chapters across the nation will celebrate with a wide variety of activities. Community service projects, jobsite tours, membership drives, children’s activities, hands-on workshops, fundraisers, and school programs are some of the ways local chapters will observe WIC Week.
The Boston Chapter traditionally participates in three different events during WIC week: BWiC Inspire Awards through AGC Massachusetts, Habitat for Humanity in partnership with the NAWIC Worcester Chapter, and a donation drive for a local charity focused on supporting women.
More details on these events and other WIC Week happenings will be posted on NAWIC Boston’s Twitter page @NAWICBoston or on their website nawicboston.org.
