CCIC at Construction & Transportation GIRL

CCIC Infrastructure Engineering students attended Transportation & Construction GIRL, an annual event sponsored by the HOYA Foundation. This event is geared toward educating young women about careers in traditionally male-dominated construction and transportation industries.  Attendees visited dozens of hands-on exhibits.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, women made up only 10.9 percent employees in the construction industry in 2020, an increase from 2016, when the figure was 8%.
