Engineering, science and construction have historically been male-dominated industries. Over the past few years, there’s been an increase in the number of women moving into these fields. The asphalt industry is no exception. Although women do not represent a majority, they are beginning to represent more positions across the industry, from the field to the C-suite.
The Women of Asphalt is a national coalition which supports women in all aspects of the asphalt industry through mentoring, education, and advocacy, and by encouraging women to seek careers in the asphalt industry.
The Florida Branch of the Women of Asphalt will establish a local group for women in Florida. This group will strive to:
- To foster and promote mentoring and networking opportunities for women in asphalt
- To create professional development opportunities for women in asphalt through education and training
- To advocate for women in the asphalt industry
- To encourage other women to join the asphalt industry
