The construction industry is witnessing more change than ever by forging unprecedented growth in technology and diversity of the workforce. It might surpirse you to know that women entering the construction industry is the fastest growing demographic!

Although studies show that women complement and even enhance profits on projects, many firms are not thinking strategically about how women can fit well into all facets of the organization.
