Women accounted for nearly 1.2 million of those employed in the construction industry in 2020, per the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and about 10.9% of the workforce. In 2021, that share crept even higher to 11%.
Women are continually taking on expanding roles within the home building industry. And as the numbers keep growing, NAHB wants to ensure women leaders continue to advance within the Federation.
In an upcoming Shop Talk hosted by the NAHB Professional Women in Building Council (PWB), industry experts Linda Hebert, owner of Diversified Marketing and Communications Inc., and Nicole Goolsby, owner of Red Ladder Residential Inc., will discuss effective strategies and key considerations for women leaders throughout NAHB.
The free Shop Talk, “Filling the Pipeline: Advancing Women Leaders Across the Federation,” will take place Thursday, Aug. 17 at 11 a.m. ET and be moderated by PWB Second Vice Chair Carrie DeWeese.
