Michigan Program Introduces Women to Construction Opportunities

Construction companies facing increasingly tough workforce shortage problems are finding innovative ways to excite more people into the industry.

A program in Michigan is doing just that, Project: Accelerate!, provides up-and-coming women a window into the many opportunities available at all professional levels within the industry.

Rita Brown, president of steel detailing company BCC+ in Pontiac, Michigan and a workforce development consultant, founded the program with the support of the National Association of Women in Construction.

“It was in reaction to some of the market conditions going on. I didn’t see many positions available for women once they were past a certain age, even if they have decades of experience,” says Brown, a director of the North Central Region of NAWIC.

Other industry partners, including AGC members, are actively involved with Project: Accelerate! Brown serves on the board of AGC of Michigan and is incoming chair of the AGC of America’s Diversity and Inclusion Council. READ MORE (AGC of America)
