The Continuing Rise of Women in Construction
Carolina Cudemus-Jones; Director: Design and Construction Management; UMass Amherst

The percentage of women in construction hovers between 9 to 10% across the industry, in the field only 3%.  The industry is changing – the industry now recognizes that women bring an additional layer of diversity, experience and management style that are innovating and energizing an industry. Construction in general is experiencing shortages in skilled knowledge across the disciplines and women have become the future of the industry at all levels.
