On March 2, Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan presented a Proclamation to the Minneapolis/Saint Paul Chapter. Proclamations also were sent by the mayors of Minneapolis and Saint Paul.

The focus of WIC Week is to highlight women as a visible component of the construction industry. It also is a time for local chapters to give back to their communities.

"Construction has less than 9 percent of women working in the industry. In the actual trades, it is 3 percent," said Dove Sifers-Putman, immediate past president of NAWIC. "What better way to educate women that construction is a viable career than through NAWIC."

Other event sponsors included Peterson Companies and Brin Glass Company.

Founded in 1969, the local chapter has awarded scholarships to qualified individuals who aim to study in the construction and construction-related fields.
