Women in Construction

To help highlight women as a viable force of the construction industry, ConExpo-Con/Agg announced a partnership with two women in construction-focused associations: The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) and Women of Asphalt (WOFA).

“As the largest construction industry-focused trade show in North America, ConExpo-Con/Agg seeks to draw attention to and celebrate the important role women play in the industry,” said Dana Wuesthoff, vice president of expositions and event services with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers and ConExpo-Con/Agg show director. “Working together, ConExpo-Con/Agg, NAWIC and WOFA, will not only showcase women industry leaders, but reinforce the career growth potential for women, who today represent a small percentage of the workforce and the opportunity to diversify the industry.”
