Many female construction workers become members of NAWIC because they want to feel supported within the male-dominated field of construction. One of our main goals with our NAWIC members is to share as much content as we can that will help female construction workers feel seen and heard. Among the sources of great content for female construction workers is the podcast category. We’ve rounded up a list of some of the top-rated podcasts created specifically for construction women and got a few suggestions from our members to add to the list. These podcasts are not only supportive spaces but are great conversation starters for female construction workers as well.
