#BUILDLIKEAGIRL

Video highlights from past events

While women comprise a mere 9.9% of the construction industry

(with only a staggering

of laborers in the field being women)

an evolving workforce equates to endless job opportunities and strong salaries for skilled craftspersons.

As a way to educate and build female interest in the construction industry, Miron Construction hosts a FREE, annual event for local 7th through 10th grade female students. This event – “Build Like A Girl” – offers attendees a full day of hands-on experiences as well as an in-depth look at opportunities within the construction industry.

Here’s what parents of past attendees have to say:

“I just want to thank you SO much for this fantastic event. My girls have not stopped talking about it since we picked them up….You may just have added a girl or two to your ‘field.'”

“Thank you for putting this on for the girls. My daughter had a really good time and more importantly she learned that girls can do anything!”

“I want to thank you as my daughter had an amazing time. She had no clue what she wanted to do when she grows up and she does now.”

“Thank you for orchestrating such an amazing event for girls!…I cannot thank you enough for wanting to build your workforce, but at the same time giving back to the community building career awareness for girls."
