As part of Sustainable Building Week, Sustainable Northwest Wood presents our next Sustainable Wood Story focused on Women in the Sustainable Building Industry.
Women represent less than 10% of the overall workforce in the construction industry, and only 3.4% in the trades. In general, women are paid only 81% of the salaries of their male counterparts, but in construction, salaries are much more equal. Companies are recognizing the benefits of a diverse workforce and the potential for women to have a positive impact in the building industry is tremendous. Our panel of speakers will feature a variety of perspectives from some incredible female leaders bringing their passion, expertise, and tenacity to a career focused on creating a better world for us all.
