Women in Construction
(page 1 of 5)
Opportunities for women in construction has grown slowly, but steadily in the past 20 years as traditional barriers in the male-dominated profession are falling, opening leadership roles for women. However, according to the National Association of Women in Construction, women still only comprise approximately 10 percent of the nation’s construction industry workforce. Hawaii Business salutes Hawaii’s women in construction. They are the groundbreakers who are playing an essential role in our island economy, while taking the lead in transforming the construction industry into the 21st Century.
