Women in Construction
While the number of women working in construction continues to climb, women still only account for 10% of the workforce. The good news: The gender pay gap is significantly smaller in construction occupations with women earning on average 99.1% of what men make, compared to 81.1% across all careers fields. Nonetheless, women face unique challenges in this very male-dominated industry.
Join Rachael Pease, Diversity Program Manager for Korsmo Construction, as she shares the importance of company culture and supporting and advocating for women in breaking down these barriers in our Women Build workshop on Wednesday, May 12 at 4:30 PST.
