During #WomensHistoryMonth, from March 5th – 11th we celebrate the women working in the construction industry. In 2022, women make up 10.9% of the industry.
Each year in March, our industry comes together to celebrate National Women in Construction (WIC) Week. This week celebrates the initiatives and value added by women to the construction industry. National Association of Women in Construction celebrated the first WIC Week in 1998, and it has gained momentum each year.
WIC week is March 5-11, and highlights the history of women in construction, their challenges in the industry, and the opportunities women have created in the workplace. The Company appreciates the women who have supported our organization throughout the years and continues to do so every day.
This year’s theme, ‘Many Paths, One Mission’, celebrates the different journeys women have taken toward the same goal: strengthening and amplifying the success of women in the construction industry. Join us as we highlight our female teammates and showcase the opportunities available for women in the construction industry. Throughout our Marine, Concrete, and Engineering business segments, I am proud to see women hold roles in all facets of our business, including field operations, leadership, engineering, project controls, marketing, accounting, finance, information technology, human resources, administration, and business development
These are the wonderful ladies that are a huge part of our success at Orion Group Holdings and Orion Marine Group. This week we celebrate them and thank them for their support! Follow us on LinkedIn to see some highlight features on a handful of these women.
