Women in Construction (WiC) is a grassroots Vancouver Island network working to promote and support female participation in one of the key sectors of our provincial economy: construction. The Vancouver Island Construction Association is proud to support WiC's Nanaimo and Victoria chapters.
Who Can Join WiC?
WiC is open to anyone who considers themselves a “woman in construction”, as well as those who support women working in the industry. The network is comprised of private and public sector workers, students, engineers, apprentices, labourers, tradespersons, project managers, developers, architects, and professional admin staff.
Those connected to the construction industry will benefit from the guest speakers, site tours, and networking opportunities found at our monthly meetings. Events have included a Women in Trades event at VIU, a site tour of the Empress Hotel Renovations followed by a dinner at Steamship, Women in Construction at Island Aggregates, Seasonal Socials, site tours at some of our Member's projects,and guest speakers touching on topics such as Marketing for Construction Companies and Work-Life Balance.
