TRICO is a proud supporter of NAWIC (National Association of Women in Construction), and kicked off the Pacific Northwest NAWIC Regional Forum as Thursday’s Night Cap Sponsor. The event was hosted by the Puget Sound Chapter and brought together over 160 women from across the country. People gathered in Seattle from several states including New York, Alaska, Texas and Georgia to celebrate triumphs and discuss opportunities for professional development, education, public service and building confidence.
Participants toured the newly renovated Space Needle and learned more about the landmark’s early beginnings and history. Alisha Valavanis, General Manager of the Seattle Storm, gave an inspiring message about women supporting women, intention, positivity and showing up to win. A panel of tradeswomen shared their stories and positive changes they are making in the construction industry and how they are preparing new workers to enter the field safely.
