While women comprise a mere 2.6% of the construction industry nationally, an evolving workplace equates to endless job opportunities and a strong salary for skilled craftspeople. As a way to educate and build female interest in the construction industry, Miron Construction hosts a FREE, annual event for local 7th through 10th grade female students. This event – “Build Like A Girl” – offers attendees a full day of hands-on experiences as well as an in-depth look at opportunities within the construction industry.
For the majority of the day, girls work within small groups led by Miron staff at a temporary job site adjacent to Miron’s headquarters in NEENAH, Wis. Students will get hands-on experience in the fields of masonry, carpentry, concrete, and equipment operation and will also go on a tour of a live construction site. Check out a VIDEO of last year’s event.
