2019 will be the final year of the ADCI Audit Initiative. By March 1, 2020, every ADCI Member will need to have submitted to an audit. The 36-month initiative kicked off on March 1, 2017.

Ziven Drake has always been a tomboy. As a former US Air Force mechanic and a current member of the Pile Drivers Local 56 Union, the 36-year-old Dorchester transplant from Woodstock, Vermont, is used to being in environments that are male-dominated. Drake has often been the sole woman in her fields of activity, but that hasn’t held her back; in fact, she was recently named Trades Woman of the Year by the Associated General Contractors of Massachusetts in recognition of her excellent work as a commercial diver with Local 56.
