Colleagues, Collaborators, and Partners:

For over 68 years, the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) continues to strengthen and amplify the success of women in the construction industry.

Aligning as community partners during the inaugural Construction Inclusion Week is vital as we evolve and envision success within the industry. How are you:

● Advocating for equitable and inclusive workplaces?

● Building a sustainable and diverse talent pipeline?

● Advancing success-driven DEI strategies, in your organization?

The ask is to align interests, and share, post and participate with presentations, actions, and programs across the country and across the industry. There is irrefutable data to support bottom-line advantages when engaging robust and intentional DEI initiatives.
NAWIC Benefits Spotlight
"Everyone will benefit from building a strong foundation.

As a fast moving industry, we're all constantly focused on moving forward.

And that's what Women in Construction is all about.

We're working to put more boots on the ground to increase our labor pool and advance our industry. Together we can open doors for everyone."

In the hit series Ted Lasso, the perennially optimistic coach who finds himself transitioning from American football to soccer, he reminds his players to “be a goldfish”. He knows nothing about soccer, and neither would you to embrace his message, but he does understand human nature. He tells the team that a goldfish has the shortest memory span in the animal world. How can we consider his philosophy and embrace his guidance in our own lives?

Industry Update
Lennar Co-CEO Jon Jaffe said Monday the entire homebuilding industry is facing labor constraints and shortages — particularly of "engineered wood, windows, garage doors, paint and vinyl siding" — that were limiting the company's ability to keep up with real estate demand.
More than 2,000 members of the Northwest Carpenters Union continued their biggest strike since 2003 on Tuesday, driving their work stoppage against the Associated General Contractors of Washington to its fourth day, and one worker called for an unsanctioned wildcat strike Wednesday morning. 
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, companies across the country have pivoted to hybrid working models — part in-person and part remote — and according to new data, construction is adopting this trend, too.
