"The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old but on building the new."
WE WANT TO MAKE AN IMPACT
After years of longing for change, we are ready to do our part to start "building the new" and helping create a better community.
As passionate champions of the building industry, we offer complimentary and discounted services for women-led organizations within construction and homebuilding.
From affordable housing and opportunities for generational wealth to closing the pay gap, we believe innovation and monumental change within the building industry will help us address the issues and build a better community.
Did you know that women make up nearly half of the total labor force and that less than 10% of U.S. construction workers are female? As an industry, we can do better. According to Insider, the only fields with a lower percentage are aerospace engineers, firefighters, and aircraft pilots.
Avaly Scarpelli, executive director for the Building Industry Association, was recently quoted saying: “As the home building industry continues to struggle with a labor shortage, now more than ever is the time for our industry to not only increase our recruitment efforts but to also change the way we talk about careers in home building to show women this industry has so much to offer them.”
From vendors and trades to designers and builders, more women in the building industry may be a solution that drives much-needed change, and we are here for it.
