The objective of the Women in Concrete Alliance (WICA) is to supply information, opportunities, and mentoring to women working in the concrete construction industry. The Advisory Board will direct the momentum of the efforts, keeping the mission centered on positive information that will help women network and be successful. The idea for an ongoing network began with Hanley Wood’s Women in Concrete (WIC) event at World of Concrete and the WIC monthly features in Concrete Construction and Concrete Producer magazines. WICA strives to go beyond these initial efforts and reach more women to create an industry alliance that serves the needs of all women in concrete.
Women in Concrete began in 2005 as a networking luncheon and forum at the World of Concrete. Since its inception, more than 1,000 women have shared their experiences at Women in Concrete events.
