CLR Connector March Is Women’s History Month
Women in Construction Week 2023 ran from March 5th to March 11th.
Businesses, associations, and other industry partners hosted a variety of events to celebrate the accomplishments, power, and strength of all the incredible women in the construction industry while recognizing there is still a great deal of work to be done.
Women still account for only 5.7% of the construction trade workforce across 26,262 construction companies in the province, according to the British Columbia Construction Association (BCCA). There are huge opportunities to meet the significant construction labour shortage in our province through a greater focus on diversifying our labour force.
Women in Construction Week is dedicated to changing the stereotypes that women face when it comes to careers by offering them endless opportunities in the construction sector.
