“For 60 years NAWIC Sacramento has enhanced careers for women working within the construction industry,” says Agata Krasniewska, President of NAWIC Sacramento, DOME Construction. “Working with industry professionals made me recognize the value of building your own network and the importance of positive relationships. NAWIC helped me grow as a professional and gave me an opportunity to be in a leadership position.”

The focus of Women in Construction (WIC) Week is to highlight women as a viable component of the construction industry. WIC Week also provides an occasion for NAWIC’s thousands of members across the country to raise awareness of the opportunities available for women in the construction industry and to emphasize the growing role of women in the industry. It is also a time for local chapters to give back to their communities.

“The energy in our NAWIC Sacramento Chapter is terrific. Our 60th charter anniversary is coming up in March which makes WIC Week 2022 even more special,” says WIC Week Committee Chair Dona Lisa Buschmann, Bender Insurance Solutions. “This organization opens up networking opportunities not only at the chapter and regional level but also at the national and international levels. NAWIC Sacramento Chapter is an active supporter of various non-profits within our region, join us to grow your career, network, and have an impact on our community. We are excited to build our future together!”

Construction professionals are encouraged to participate in various events during Women In Construction Week March 6-12th, 2022.
