WIC Week was a huge success in Atlanta and included organized three events. Monday night we met with industry leaders at Atlanta’s own Monday Night Brewery. This casual craft brewery featured a spacious, high-ceilinged tasting room. We made lasting connections over brews and foods while mingling through the facility tour. On Wednesday we were provided a first look at the updates to the Phillips Arena, home to the Atlanta Hawks. $193 million dollars is being invested into our downtown Atlanta community and NAWIC Atlanta got a sneak peak at the action. A very special thank you to Chasm Architecture & Turner Construction who were instrumental in getting us access to the ongoing renovation. We ended the week with a Friday night Hard Hats and High Heels social event that connected NAWIC-Atlanta members who are industry leaders, government officials and the Georgia Tech Student Construction Association. 

Canadian politician Charlotte Whitton once said, “Whatever women do they must do twice as well as men to be thought half as good. Luckily, this is not difficult.”

A little gender humor is a great way to begin a month-long celebration for Women’s History Month and a week of memorable events to commemorate who we are as women in construction.

It all begins with WIC Week, 2018!  Everyone is invited – women, men and college students – to join us March 5-9.
