Kang Haggerty is a proud sponsor of the Mentoring Young Women in Construction (MyWIC) 2022 Construction Camp.
MyWIC is designed to help young girls gain knowledge of the construction industry through hands-on experience. During camp, girls learn and develop basic skills in carpentry, painting, taping, glazing, laboring, and more. They also have the opportunity to meet women in the industry, such as architects, engineers, and tradeswomen. Through this experience, young girls are given the tools to create a strong foundation for their careers. During the 2021 camp, the girls created a magazine highlighting their experiences.
NAWIC Philadelphia, PA Chapter 145 was chartered in 1967 with the goal of networking and enhancing knowledge of the construction industry for women. Since the start of MyWIC in 2009, the impact of NAWIC Philadelphia has expanded beyond this by supporting young girls interested in construction, an industry with a small percentage of women. Through MyWIC, girls gain invaluable knowledge and experience, and a young generation of girls is encouraged to pursue construction careers. As a firm committed to diversifying the legal industry, we are impressed by MyWIC’s efforts to support girls interested in the construction industry.
MyWIC is hosted by NAWIC Philadelphia Foundation, a 501(c)3 Educational Non-Profit Corporation. Learn more about this incredible organization here: https://nawicphl.org/mywic
