Industry Surveys Highlight the State of Women in Construction

Women in Construction Week is in full swing after starting on Sunday, March 7 and continuing through March 13th, helping to raise awareness of the opportunities that are available for women in the industry and highlighting those making a positive impact.  In conjunction, several companies have completed surveys of hundreds of female construction professionals, showing the progress that has been made and the opportunities still left to tackle.
