Celebrating Women in Construction

This week EMJ celebrates Women in Construction Week, hosted by the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC).

During Women in Construction Week, the industry acknowledges the significant contributions that women have made to construction and to promote the many career opportunities and various professional choices that are open to them.

We are proud to have many talented women on our team, both in the field and in our offices,” said Heather Collins, EVP of People and IT, EMJ. “Their hard work, dedication, and expertise are integral to the success of our projects, and we are grateful for their contributions.

During this week, EMJ encourages women who are interested in pursuing a career in construction to explore the many opportunities available in this exciting and dynamic field. Whether it’s in preconstruction, project management, engineering, architecture, or skilled trades, there’s a role for women in construction.

NAWIC held the first WIC Week in 1998 and it has grown and expanded each year since. Many local chapters hold WIC Week events. This year’s theme, ‘Many Paths, One Mission’, celebrates the different journeys women have taken toward the same goal: strengthening and amplifying the success of women in the construction industry.

By visiting Women in Construction Week, you can find events and panels in which to participate, as well as information on the day’s theme, educational resources, highlighted events, and more.

As we celebrate Women in Construction Week, we are proud to be part of an industry that values diversity, innovation, and hard work,” said Collins. “We look forward to continuing to work with women and men from all backgrounds to make the company stronger through diversity of thought.”
