Historically, construction has been viewed as a man’s career. However, women increasingly are becoming involved in the industry as these cultural barriers diminish. The construction industry offers a wide variety of career options, ranging from seasonal workers to engineers to project managers to architects.

Many of these careers also offer unique opportunities, such as flexibility, financial security, and even a chance to impact your city’s appearance, infrastructure, and culture. As such, as more women get involved in this career path, they may have more professional opportunities, as well as more means of making their mark in their communities.
