Miron Construction aims to break stereotypes, hosts annual ‘Build Like a Girl’ event
Stereotypes are widely held beliefs about a specific group and one local construction company is aiming to break the stereotype that women don’t belong in the industry.
Miron Construction’s sixth annual ‘Build Like a Girl’ event welcomed 30 female students to its headquarters in Neenah for a day-long program to showcase opportunities for women in the construction industry.
The goal of the program is to combat both the severe lack of women in the construction field and the skill gap affecting the construction industry.
Girls from seventh to tenth grade were invited out to talk with women in the industry, get a tour of an active project site, and discuss surrounding topics such as wages in the industry, apprenticeships, and work zone safety.
