This week, March 4-10, we are celebrating “Women in Construction (WIC) Week,” which highlights and brings awareness to the role of women as a viable component of the construction industry. According to the United States Department of Labor, women represent only 9 percent of the construction jobs within the industry. Despite making up a fraction of the current construction workforce, women are poised to move toward the forefront of the industry with a slow, but steady influx of female engineers, architects, project leaders, tradeswomen, contractors, and more.
Here at Loeffler Construction & Consulting we are proud to be a Woman-Owned/Minority-Owned/Targeted-Group Small Business. This week, in celebration of WIC Week, we will be featuring the outstanding women here in the office, starting today with CEO, Tammy Loeffler.
