"Women in Residential Construction Kick - Off Luncheon"

Join us May 10th to hear more about our newest committee – “Women in Residential Construction”, its mandates and relevancy to our rapidly changing world.   

Listen to guest speaker, Tema Frank who is considered a best-selling author of “People Shock and Canada’s Best Employers for Women”. How will listening to Tema benefit YOU? How does diversity make your company better and stronger? Tema tells us how.

Women in Construction - What’s changed? What Hasn’t?

Women’s progress in construction, as in many other industries, has failed to live up to the high hopes of the 1980s and ‘90s. There’s been some progress, but not nearly as much as we expected. And in many ways, the conversation about women in this industry is the same now as it was in 1994 when Tema Frank wrote the first edition of the best-selling book, Canada’s Best Employers for Women: A Guide for Job Hunters, Employees and Employers.  Come hear about what she’s learned so far, where the project is headed, and how you can help.
