PWB WeekThe NAHB Federation is once again celebrating Professional Women in Building Week, Sept. 17-21, to bring awareness to the vital contributions of women in the residential construction industry. The week is sponsored by 84 Lumber.

This year’s theme is workforce development and NAHB will be highlighting how the industry can help recruit more female workers to address the labor shortage. Members and HBAs also are encouraged to get involved in this special week. Here are a few ideas:

  • Highlight the important and growing role of women within the local building industry at a membership meeting or community event. Share their contributions in your newsletter or website.
  • Change your profile picture on Facebook, Twitter or other social media platforms for the week. Download the PWB Week graphic at nahb.org/pwbweek and use it to spread the word. Be sure to use #PWBWeek18 in your social posts.
  • Write an article for your local paper or a blog post for your website that shares resources to encourage women to pursue careers in engineering, skilled trades and other professions that support the home building industry.
