In support of our valuable Women in Construction, we asked a few questions about their on-the-job experience.

How has COVID impacted work in your trade and on project sites?

Covid has slowed the ability of contractors to get work. Therefore I have had two or three furloughs. Other than that, the only difference has been taking a break alone and wearing a mask.

Since we know the construction industry is primarily male-dominated, what top three aspects have affected you negatively and positively?

Honestly, being a woman has had no noticeable impact on my job. It is reasonable to assume the guys go easier on me regarding carrying or lifting extra heavy things. Still, generally, I am treated just like everyone else.
