Description

The Women In Construction Expo is an educational and outreach event organized by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC), and its Small Firm Advisory Committee, in conjunction with the National Association of Women in Construction, and the Women’s Business National Council. The 5th Annual Women In Construction Expo will further our goals to empower women in the trades by providing tips on how to enter pre-apprenticeship programs, begin a career in the construction industry, promote skill-building, and navigate through the contract bidding process. Attendees will also learn about construction opportunities with the SFPUC.
