Women in Construction Week 2024

Project W Launches in Celebration of Women in Construction

Women in Construction (WIC) Week is an annual event that takes place during the first week of March. Started by NAWIC and now in its 26th year, the week has served as an opportunity to celebrate and promote women in the industry as well as raise awareness of challenges facing them and highlight opportunities available. This year’s theme, “Keys to the Future,” celebrates the strength and knowledge of women and the vital role they play in shaping the future of the construction industry.

Project W Launches

McKinstry is marking WIC Week 2024 with the launch of our Project W initiative, which recognizes that women are keys to McKinstry’s future of a strong and diverse workforce.

“Project W encompasses the many ways we’re empowering women in construction — in the industry, as we shape our future workforce, and within our company,” said Ashley Ruiz, VP, Social Impact. “Through Project W, McKinstry strives to attract, support and elevate women — paving the way for the next generation of women in construction.”

Our programs of support within Project W include, but not limited to:

Project W Field Kits

Additionally, an exciting feature of Project W is McKinstry’s new field kit for women, which has a range of products to meet unique safety and wellness needs of women on construction jobsites, in service vans and in other places where they may not have access to items needed to be safe, healthy and supported.
