The leading association for women in construction
The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) was founded in 1953 by sixteen women working in the construction industry. The founders organized NAWIC to create a support network for women working in a male-dominated field. Today, NAWIC has over 115 chapters throughout the United States that provide its members with opportunities for professional development, education, networking, leadership training, public service and more. NAWIC continues the vision of its founding members by advocating for the value and impact of women builders, professionals and tradeswomen in all aspects of the construction industry.
