Title: How to Succeed in the Male Dominated Built Industry: The Advantages of Workforce Diversity

Description:

In 2018, there were almost 76 million women in the US labor force, representing 46.9% of the total workforce.  In the same year, 80% of contractors across the country reported trouble hiring skilled workers.  Women represent only 9.9% of the workforce in construction industry based jobs including P-H-C but only 3.4% of employees in the field.  What will it take for women to represent a larger percentage of work in the industry and what effects can this have on construction’s workforce shortage?  Join us for a discussion with women and allies who are already creating a successful competitive edge for their companies.  We’ll discuss their journey, professional strategies for success, and advice on creating a culture of inclusion – and how that drives profit for your company’s bottom line.
