Women in Construction Week 2023
March 13, 2023
The month of March marks not only Women’s History Month, but also recognizes Women in Construction! Only 10% of the construction industry is made up of women and as such we believe it’s important to celebrate and encourage all women who are blazing the trail for other women to join the industry. Egan Company was a corporate sponsor of this year’s celebration, revolving around the theme of “Many Paths, One Mission.”
Throughout the week, the National Association of Women in Construction hosted a series of local and national events. A few of the events that our Egan team members attended included:
- Pioneers in Skirts Viewing hosted by Dunwoody College of Technology at Ungerman: attendees watched and discussed this social impact documentary and met Peggy Flanagan, Minnesota’s 50th Lieutenant Governor.
- Industry Showcase & Happy Hour hosted by Women in NECA: participants networked with peers and learned about local trade associations and organizations.
- Rosies of the Rail hosted by Lunda Construction: a roundtable discussion was held around the question “What is your ideal work day?” with members of the Southwest Light Rail Transit project team. Egan’s in-house General Counsel, Erin Neils, was a panelist for the event.
- Women’s Leadership Panel & Brunch hosted by JE Dunn Construction: women leaders in the industry shared some of the knowledge and experience they’ve built over their careers.
Many Paths, One Mission.
