1.Advancing Women In Construction

The Purpose of the Program:
The program aims to support the recruitment, retention, and ultimately, the job placement of strong, qualified females from the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment’s Del E. Webb School of Construction (DEWSC) at Arizona State University.
The mentorship program links female students with experienced members of the construction industry for the purposes of career development and professional growth. This is achieved through sharing knowledge and insights, from the mentor, that have been learned throughout the years.

Program Highlights
Students will:

  • Create beneficial and lasting relationships with other students in the program
  • Gain access to a strong industry mentor for support, guidance, and door opening for employment opportunities
  • Participate in industry networking events and educational workshops
  • Gain practical experience through company and job-site visits
  • Get access to financial scholarships based upon their participation in the program
