Women In Construction Week is celebrated each year during the first week of March. This week is dedicated to changing the stereotypes that women face when it comes to careers by giving them new opportunities to look at; the construction industry has many places where women can advance and build a career for themselves. It also coincides with International Women's Day which takes place just after; on March 8th, 2023.

Women in Construction Week was founded by the National Association of Women in Construction. NAWIC began in 1953 by a group of women to help create support for other women in the industry. The NAWIC founded Women in Construction Week to give their organization an event to help bring women together.
