Celebrate National Women in Construction Week with IEC!
IEC will be celebrating National Women in Construction Week (WIC Week™) next week, March 3 – 9, 2024. WIC Week is dedicated to recognizing and promoting the invaluable contributions of women in the construction industry.
What is National Women in Construction Week? 
WIC Week™, or Women in Construction Week™, celebrates and promotes the role of women in the construction industry. Initiated by NAWIC in 1998, this week has since grown into a nationwide movement, highlighting the achievements and impact of women in construction.
The theme for this year’s WIC Week™ is ‘Keys to the Future,’ celebrating the strength, knowledge, and pivotal role that women play in shaping the future of the construction industry. It’s a tribute to the resilience and expertise of women in construction, highlighting their essential role in driving innovation and progress.
