DALLAS/FORT WORTH – The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC)’s Fort Worth chapter not only stick together - they WIC together! The association’s “Women In Construction” (WIC) Week, held Mar. 5-11, celebrated women in construction and highlighted them as a visible component of the industry. The events also served as an opportunity for NAWIC members nationwide to raise awareness of opportunities available for women and their growing role.

    The Fort Worth chapter kicked off the week Mar. 5 with a brunch at The Social House, inviting all whom might be interested in NAWIC to attend and learn more.
    On Mar. 6, the Fort Worth and Dallas chapters gathered at HILTI in Irving to try the latest tools and promote the association to other attendees.
    The next day, the chapter hosted an open board meeting so that attendees could learn how NAWIC Fort Worth’s everyday business was conducted.
    On Wednesday, the chapter hosted a special, free presentation of Vivian Price’s documentary film, “Hammering it Out,” which spotlights the experience of women in the building trades.
    The women grabbed their bowling bags for Friday’s event, which was “Bowling with NAWIC” at Fort Worth’s Cowtown Bowling Palace. 
    The ladies culminated the week Mar. 11 in a joint event with the Dallas chapter at Home Depot in Irving. There, members and guests enjoyed an outside lighting Do-It-Yourself workshop, and topped off the events with lunch at Irving’s On the Border Mexican Grill & Cantina. –mjm
