NAWIC History

NAWIC History


Our Approach

The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) originally began as Women in Construction of Fort Worth, Texas.  Sixteen women working in the construction industry founded it in 1953. Knowing that women represented only a small fraction of the construction industry, the founders organized the support network.  

The original chapter was so successful that it gained its national charter in 1955 and became the National Association of Women in Construction.
