From March 3-9, the Greater Omaha Chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC, will celebrate the strength and knowledge of women and the vital role they play in shaping the future of the construction industry. Women In Construction (WIC) Week theme this year is ‘Keys to the Future’ and serves to promote NAWIC’s core purpose: to strengthen and amplify the success of women in the construction industry.

The Greater Omaha Chapter of NAWIC will participate in a week-long celebration, recognizing achievements, giving back to the local community and supporting its members. Specific events include adopting a highway, reading to elementary students, an educational seminar, a job site tour, a blood drive and an activity for a local nonprofit. WIC Week extends beyond the local chapter and is celebrated by NAWIC organizations nationwide, as well as by many additional individuals, companies and organizations across the US.
