The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) originally began as Women in Construction of Fort Worth, Texas. Sixteen women working in the construction industry founded the group in 1953. Knowing that women represented only a small fraction of the construction industry, the founders organized NAWIC to create a support network. Women in Construction of Fort Worth was so successful that it gained its national charter in 1955 and became the National Association of Women in Construction. Today, NAWIC provides its members with opportunities for professional development, education, networking, leadership training, public service and more.
The Milwaukee Chapter was chartered in 1968 and continues to provide educational, leadership and community service opportunities for members throughout the community

It is our desire that upon completing the Camp sessions, participants will have a clearunderstanding of the necessary skill-sets required by those engaged in the construction industry. It is a unique summer day camp program for girls that will introduce them to exciting opportunities within the construction industry
