What do women do in construction? Just about everything. Ten women editors from Engineering News-Record and Architectural Record spent a day in the life of 10 women in the industry to find out what they think about their careers, about breaking stereotypes and about how to get ahead.
Our search for diversity took us to eight states in which we interviewed women in 10 different professions. The women, aged 28 to 58 years old, have roles ranging from assistant professor and journeyman ironworker to chief engineer and CEO. While their backgrounds and jobs vary, they all agree that women have "the right stuff" for construction.
