In the state of Colorado, they have a proclaimed Construction GIRL Day which aims to encourage young women to pursue non-traditional careers in transportation and construction!
This year, Denver is celebrating their third-annual Transportation and Construction GIRL Day through offering hands-on experience in careers they wouldn’t commonly pursue. Currently, only 9.1% of the construction workforce are women. This is a slight increase from the 8% in 2016.
At the beginning of last year’s event, only 34% of the girls attending had pursued a career in transportation or construction. By the end, more than 71% said they were interested in those careers! We are thrilled to see initiatives like Construction GIRL Day. Contact us for career opportunities!
