Construction Site Preparedness – Empowering Women

Careers are a marathon, not a sprint. Attendees will learn strategies to implement in their professional careers to allow them to grow and nurture, with a focus specifically on careers in the construction industry and jobsite preparedness. Strategies will cover mentorship, technical training, safety, apparel for women, community engagement, and advocacy for women. A high priority is to invest in yourself! Plant the seeds and let them grow. The first 5 years are a critical time. Pace yourself. The first 20 years are a critical time for creating the space you want to work within. Empower your career with helpful strategies.
