Meet & Greet with the WIC


Construction is experiencing a shortage of workers at all levels. And while women make up half the workforce few chose to enter construction. As an industry, we need to look at ways to attract, support and retain female workers.

On October 17th the HHCA’s Women in Construction Group is hosting a meet and greet breakfast featuring keynote speaker Denise Christopherson, Chief Executive Officer of the YWCA Hamilton. Denise will be speaking to the latest edition of the EXCLerator Project which tracks the participation of women and minorities in leadership positions in the Hamilton Halton Region. During her interactive presentation, Denise will share the strategies companies have successfully used to support and encourage their female employees, like drafting inclusive policies and reviewing their recruitment processes.

The HHCA has hosted a Women in Construction (WIC) Group since 2013. Made up of women from all areas of the industry, the WIC provides female employees with an opportunity to network, develop professionally and exchange ideas.

We encourage ALL members of the HHCA to attend this session and meet our hard-working WIC members. The WIC is always looking for members. Come learn about what we’re doing and why your staff should take part.
