The National Association of Women in Construction will celebrate the 10th anniversary of Women in Construction Week March 4-10, 2007. The focus of this week every March is to raise awareness of the possibilities the construction industry holds for potential employees. NAWIC chapters participate in various programs over the week, such as Construction Career Days for high-school students and Block-Kids for elementary and middle-school students.
In the past, chapters have worked with Girl Scouts and school children to teach them jobs about construction by helping them build projects of their own, as well as Habitat for Humanity Women Build projects. Last year, many chapters were involved in the rebuilding effort in New Orleans and along the Gulf Coast. Visit www.nawic.org.
