March is International Women’s Month, and we just wrapped up Women in Construction week. At BridgePoint, we celebrate the strong, smart, and powerful women all around us:
Why do we celebrate Women in Construction week?
- Because women now make up 9.9% percent of the US’s construction industry, and we’re contributing to this rise!
- Because only 1% of women work the front lines of job sites, and we’re here to change that.
- Because women comprise 14% of executive positions in the construction industry, and we’re creating leadership opportunities for women to be at the table.
- Because 13% of construction firms are owned by women, and BridgePoint is one of them!
“My favorite part about running my own business is being able to create the type of company where I would want to work. I’m proud of the team we’ve built at BridgePoint and am honored that people enjoy working here,” says Shelley McPhatter.
