History of NAWIC

Mission Statement:


The association committed to championing women to impact the direction of the construction industry. NAWIC provides education, community and advocacy for women.

The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) was founded in 1953 as Women in Construction of Fort Worth, Texas. Seeing that women represented only a fraction of the construction industry workforce, 16 women founded NAWIC to create a support network for others like themselves. 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.

NAWIC has celebrated over 60 years as a national organization.
