The Education Committee has embarked on an initiative to provide members with easy access to resources in and outside of NWiR for technical education. Topics will include areas such as metal roofing and metal edging, asphaltic systems and products, single-ply materials, fluid applied roofing, etc. Stay tuned to the NWiR blog and newsletter for monthly updates with upcoming topics.

6 Ways That Women Can Champion Each Other At Work

We’ve all heard the myth that women don’t support each other—but it’s not true. Women can be powerful allies at work for other women, and these 6 ways that women can champion each other at work are simple things we can do every day to celebrate and advocate for our female coworkers. Together we can level the playing field and go further faster.

Why Women Need to Start Supporting Other Women at Work

It’s common to hear women talk about how poorly they’re being treated by men, but what about how women at work treat other women?

Women speak of wanting equal pay, equal treatment, and so on. Yet, if we really want to achieve equal status to our male counterparts as women, then it needs to begin with us; women need to support women.

10 Essential Ways to Support the Women in Your Life Right now

Show up for women, physically and emotionally. Whether it’s sending your girls a daily text to check-in, being a shoulder to cry on, calling your mother, supporting female-founded companies, or smiling at a woman on the street, be an advocate in any and every way.

 

We hope you enjoyed Professional Resources
