The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) originally began as Women in Construction of Fort Worth, Texas. Sixteen women working in the construction industry founded it in 1953. Knowing that women represented only a small fraction of the construction industry, the founders organized NAWIC to create a support network. Women in Construction of Fort Worth was so successful that it gained its national charter in 1955 and became the National Association of Women in Construction. Today, NAWIC provides its members with opportunities for professional development, education, networking, leadership training, public service and more.
Core Purpose: To strengthen and amplify the success of women in the construction industry.
Our Mission Statement: The association is committed to championing women to impact the direction of the construction industry. NAWIC provides education, community, and advocacy for women.
