NAWIC chapters across the Carolinas have a wide variety of events planned for National Women in Construction (WIC) Week, which runs from March 4-10, 2018. In North Carolina, NAWIC has chapters in Asheville, Charlotte, Durham, Fayettville, Greensboro, Piedmont and Raleigh. In South Carolina, there are NAWIC chapters in Columbia and Greenville. North and South Carolina chapters are part of NAWIC’s South Atlantic Region.
The focus of Women in Construction (WIC) Week is to highlight women as a visible component of the construction industry. WIC Week also provides an occasion for NAWIC’s thousands of members across the country to raise awareness of the opportunities available for women in the construction industry and to emphasize the growing role of women in the industry. It is also a time for local chapters to give back to their communities.
