DENVER, March 8, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PCL Construction offices across the United States are celebrating Women in Construction Week, March 6 through March 12. The week, started by the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) is an opportunity to highlight the growing role of women in the construction industry.
"Women in Construction Week is a great time for all employees to celebrate the contributions and achievements of the women of PCL," said Kelli Kelly, director of diversity and inclusion for PCL. "By recognizing the unique talents each employee brings to the company, PCL will only become a stronger, more competitive company."
As part of the celebration, PCL's US Head Office hosted a panel discussion, which was live streamed to PCL's offices across the US on Tuesday, March 8 as well as live tweeted on PCL's Twitter feed. The panel featured women from across PCL's US operating locations, with different positions, backgrounds, and experience being showcased. The panel was moderated by Shaun Yancey, president and COO of PCL's US Operations.
According to NAWIC, women make up about nine percent of the construction industry, a statistic that PCL has consistently tried to increase throughout the years through a proactive approach of intentional inclusivity.
