National Association of Women in Construction
The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) originally began as Women
in Construction of Fort Worth, Texas. Sixteen women working in the
construction industry founded it in 1953. Knowing that women represented only a
small fraction of the construction industry, the founders organized NAWIC to
create a support network. Women in Construction of Fort Worth was so successful
that it gained its national charter in 1955 and became the National Association
of Women in Construction. Today, NAWIC provides its members with opportunities
for professional development, education, networking, leadership training, public
service and more.
