The History of NAWIC
The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) originally began as Women in Construction of Fort Worth, Texas. It was founded in 1953 by 16 women working in the construction industry. Knowing that women represented only a small fraction of the construction industry, the founders organized NAWIC to create a support network. Women in Construction of Fort Worth were so successful that is gained its national charter in 1955 and became the National Association of Women in Construction.
Member of the Association are business owners and executives, subcontractors, managers, accountants, estimators and tradeswomen. Some members are employed in construction trades, including welding, carpentry, plumbing and electrical work.
Monthly chapter meetings, regional conference and national conventions provide opportunities to build a strong communication network. This helps develop and broaden valuable business contacts for your firm through your employee.
More than 30 associations work with NAWIC to share resources, aggressive problem resolutions, and safety training and best practices. Together we create a more positive image of the construction industry
