Jayden Homes is excited to announce that Purchasing Manager, Valerie Bates, has been named President of the Pikes Peak Chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction. Installed in September, Bates will lead this professional organization in their efforts to enhance the success of women in the construction industry.
The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) originally began as Women in Construction of Fort Worth, Texas. Sixteen women working in the construction industry founded it in 1953. Knowing that women represented only a small fraction of the construction industry, the founders organized NAWIC to create a support network. Women in Construction of Fort Worth was so successful that it gained its national charter in 1955 and became the National Association of Women in Construction. Today, NAWIC provides its members with opportunities for professional development, education, networking, leadership training, public service and more.
Jayden Homes is proud to support this worthwhile organization.
