The construction industry has traditionally been male-dominated, but times are changing, and more women are breaking through the barriers to pave the way for future generations. As we celebrate Women in Construction Week from March 5 to March 11, it is important to recognize and celebrate the contributions of women in the field.
Breaking Barriers: Women in Construction
Today, women in construction are making significant strides and accomplishments, from leading major projects to breaking down gender stereotypes. To further highlight the importance of this week, we are pleased to share some eye-opening statistics:
- According to a recent Associated General Contractors of America survey, 29% of construction firms have women in executive roles. Women are breaking through the glass ceiling and taking on leadership positions in construction, breaking ground for future generations. We’re proud as a construction law firm to be woman-owned and led—thus contributing to that number.
- Financially speaking, women in construction are also closing the pay gap by earning an average of 94.3% of what men earn.
- Women only make up about 10% of the construction workforce in the United States. But despite this underrepresentation, there are more than one million women working in construction-related fields today.
We are proud to support, uplift, and empower women in construction and work toward a more equitable and diverse industry. Together, we can achieve greatness and break down barriers in the construction industry.
