What tips or advice would you offer to other women who are considering entering the construction industry? Entering the construction industry can feel like you are breaking into the boys club, but don’t let that intimidate you. While there are fewer women in this industry, the women that are here are strong, supportive, and make sure the lack of numbers does not equal a lack of respect and share of voice. It can also feel that some workers onsite might brush you aside as a young woman, but if you ask questions and show an interest in learning from their expertise, they will teach you.
