5 Opportunities for Women in the Construction Industry.
Growing up, we were made to believe that there are certain things a woman cannot do and places she should not be found. She shouldn’t be seen at the top, mingling in politics, the legal system, the medical field, or financial institutions, to mention but a few. A woman’s place and level of achievement were limited and mostly relegated to the kitchen and the other room.
As teenagers, we remember a mother advising her daughter, who had fought her way through graduating as an architect, to forget her profession and focus on positioning herself well so that she would be able to find a suitor.
An average man believes that the construction industry is male-dominated because the ideas that come to mind when construction is mentioned include carpentry, electricians, painting, construction laborers, and the list goes on. In today’s career world, technological and economic evolution has created high-profile roles that are not gender-based.
Dear Amazing Woman, there is always a place for you in this world and in the construction industry specifically.
Here are the fields you can pursue in the construction industry:
- Project management
- Design and architecture
- Marketing and sales
- Skilled trades
A woman can be anything she wants to be in the construction industry and attain the greatest peak of success in life while still driving on for more.
