Several NWiR members and Executive Director Ellen Thorp were recently featured in Roofing Contractor in an article by Chris Gray about the influence of millennial women. “The latest data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows 57.4% of all women participated in the labor force in 2019, but were underrepresented (relative to their share of total employment) in construction at 10.3%. Thanks to advocacy groups like National Women in Roofing (NWiR), these women are banding together to make their voices heard.” We are so grateful to Roofing Contractor for covering this amazing group of women.
