Women in Construction Week

March 6-12, 2022

The focus of Women in Construction (WIC) Week is to highlight women as a vital component of the construction industry, raise awareness of the opportunities available for women in the construction industry and emphasize the growing role of women in the industry.

This National Women in Construction Week, we celebrate the many hardworking women who make up the Turner team.

From accounting to welding, software development to safety management, and everything in between—the women of Turner Industries do it all.

Technology—especially in our industry—is a very exciting arena to work in, it is ever changing and so are our needs related to it. I encourage women to consider careers in technology and in construction. Technology has become such an integral and vital part of what we do at Turner, and we have a great team that is always ready and up for a challenge.

I want to show women there is a place in the construction industry for us. Women bring clear communication skills to the workplace, and in the construction industry, these skills are essential.

Being a woman in this industry has given me more determination to push myself to get to where I am today. Don’t give up when difficulties arise, the sky is the limit when you work hard.

I began my career in the industry as an insulation helper in 2016. I continuously grew my knowledge over the years and in 2020 I received a promotion to Frontline Insulation Foreman. Always stay humble, practice good communication with others and keep learning every day – that’s the road to success.

Be confident in your ability to succeed and don’t let stereotypes or biases limit your career growth – prove your value, always ask questions, have a curious mind, and never stop learning about the industry.
