• Women in Construction Colorado Springs

To enhance the success of women in the construction industry

Welcome

Welcome to the website of NAWIC Pikes Peak Chapter #356! Our chapter chartered in January 1997, and we are excited to be part of our community for over 20 years. We have many exciting things planned for this year and ask that you check back intermittently as we post our meeting flyers, newsletters, programs, and projects.

The National Association of Women in Construction is a non-profit organization with chapters throughout the United States, including the recent charter of a chapter in Guam, and affiliates in Canada, Great Britain, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia, all promoting the success of women in the construction industry.

We would love to have you join us at one of our meetings. We usually meet on the third Thursday evening of each month. Please contact me for meeting information, if you have any questions about NAWIC or just want to know what our chapter is up to at the present time.

PPHFH hosts quarterly Women Build projects, in honor of the unwavering commitment the women of El Paso County have to their communities and families. Habitat encourages all women and men to volunteer – no construction skills or experience required. Individuals or groups are welcome to sign-up as we build women up in our communities!    We have three core goals on the job site 1) Safety – Please watch the recommended safety training video located in our confirmation email and below if possible2) FUN! – We are here to work hard and have a good time3) Teaching – PPHFH is a teaching organization and our qualified staff are more than willing to help!   Things to Note All volunteers MUST wear closed-toe shoes NO construction experience required We will provide hard hats, safety glasses, water, sunscreen and gloves Please dress for all weather conditions

We would love for you to wear your NAWIC shirts to the event, but you can also purchase a Women Build t-shirt at a cost of $15/shirt prior to the event (just let me know what size and I will coordinate ordering & delivery).  As mentioned above, Habitat for Humanity will be providing PPE, water and sunscreen for the event.  Please reach out to Ally Jencson or Jennifer Walker if you have any questions.

In addition to the Women Build event, our chapter will also be hosting a NAWIC membership drive/Happy Hour tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, March 4th so please look out for more details on that event coming soon!!!

We look forward to celebrating WIC Week with you!
