Building Credibility On The Job And Challenging Stereotypic Bias

  • What's it like to be a woman working in construction and being respected in a male-dominated profession? 
  • How do you manage condescending comments while in a position of authority?
  • How has work/life balance impacted your career?
  • As a woman in construction, do you feel safe, secure and valued?
  • As a man working with women, how do you deal with uncomfortable topics?

Do any of these questions sound familiar? 

In the past 10 years, the construction industry has embraced diversity and there are a lot more women entering the profession and working on jobsites. The culture within the office and on the jobsite has also changed: More women are reaching management levels. Amidst all of this, however, women are still overcoming challenges to prove themselves. What makes them succeed and how can they get support?

 Join us Jan. 9 for this FREE event for men and women. Hear how six male and female colleagues overcame stereotypical challenges and made their relationship work.
