Lake County Commissioners Proclaim Women in Construction Week in LakeCounty

PAINESVILLE, Ohio, March 10, 2023– The Board of Lake County Commissioners proclaimed the week of March 5-11, 2023, as Women in Construction Week at the commissioners meeting on March 9, 2023.

Women in Construction Week celebrates and promotes the role of women in the construction industry. National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) held the first WIC Week 25 years ago in 1998, and it has grown and expanded each year since.

“We all know that March 8 is International Women’s Day, and we celebrate it collectively in Lake County, recognizing the many contributions that women in leadership and all women make to our community. In celebrating International Women’s Day, there is a more specific focus for this week and that is Women in Construction Week, which helps to celebrate all the women who work to build up our community in the most literal sense. It has often been viewed as a male dominated profession, but that is no longer true and we need to recognize Women in Construction Week in Lake County,” said Commissioner John Plecnik. Please click here to read the entire press release.
