In honor of National Women in Construction Week, Nevada State Contractors Board (NSCB) will hold the second annual “Hammers & Hope” event, geared towards introducing/highlighting the many construction industry career opportunities for women in the community, with a particular focus on women in need and high school students considering future career paths.

The virtual event will be held on March 11 from 10:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.

“Hammers & Hope” will feature an “Inspiring Women” panel discussion, with women who have faced myriad obstacles and challenges but prevailed, thanks to the opportunities afforded by the construction industry; a “Preparing for Success” workshop with resume, job interview and networking tips; followed by a “Career Connections” panel of industry experts who will provide information on the varied careers in construction and current/available job training educational programs, apprenticeship, and services to help attendees break into the industry and secure employment.

Attendees will come away with a step-by-step understanding of how to start a career in construction, an in-depth look at working “in the field,” and the inspiration to make construction a fulfilling lifelong career.
