Highlights from 25th Annual Women in Construction Week at Schimenti


By March 16, 2023Portfolio

Women have been making significant strides in the construction industry for many years, and Women in Construction Week serves as a celebration of these achievements. Since its inception in 1998, this annual event has been promoting and celebrating the contributions of women in construction. In its 25th year, the event’s theme “Many Paths, One Mission” highlights the different journeys that women have taken to reach the common goal of strengthening and amplifying the success of women in the construction industry.

At Schimenti, we recognize and champion the importance of gender diversity and inclusivity in the construction industry. We value the contributions of women and celebrate their accomplishments. During Women in Construction Week™, we highlighted some of the remarkable women on our team. Our celebration included JoAnn Marano, Sara Gutierrez, Allison Ziminsky, Daviana Estrella, Kori Schneider, and Victoria Augustyn, each bringing a unique perspective on what it means to be a woman in construction.

Women in Construction week also coincides with International Women’s Day, a global holiday that celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. As part of our commitment to upholding gender equality standards, we reflected on our practices and challenged gender stereotypes, discrimination, and bias in our New York, Connecticut, and California offices. We gathered as teams to display our support with signs echoing messages such as “we will celebrate women’s achievements” and “we will challenge gender stereotypes, discrimination, and bias.”

At Schimenti, our workforce proudly comprises over 20% women, double the industry average of 10.9%. We are continuously growing our ranks and remain dedicated to fostering a positive workplace environment filled with respect, equality, and inclusion.

As we conclude another successful Women in Construction Week, we remain steadfast in our pursuit of tackling gender disparity in the construction industry and beyond. We extend our thanks and congratulations to the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) for another successful year, and to all who participated and contributed.
