Kansas City NARI Celebrates Women in Construction Week
Each Spring we recognize Women in Construction Week (WICW) to highlight the contributions of women in the construction industry and raise awareness of the opportunities and growing role women have in it. As the week comes to a close, we want to commend all of the women working in the construction industry and encourage more women to consider careers in this profession. There are so many exciting construction and design career paths, including architects, executives, sales, designers, contractors, business owners, project managers, carpenters, electricians and plumbers!
