From apprentices to company owners and every career path in between, women are making their mark on Milwaukee’s commercial construction industry. Diversity is essential for every company and industry to grow, and this week, the industry is coming together to support and promote the role of women in construction.
The theme of the National Association of Women in Construction’s 2022 Women in Construction Week is “envision equity,” something union labor knows a lot about. Equity is at the heart of every union trade’s hiring practices, wages and career opportunities. With a changing workforce environment, now is the time for many women to explore a new career path. Registered apprenticeship is truly an “earn as you learn” career opportunity. They are completely funded by union members, which means you have zero education-related debt and graduate with a trades degree.
