Core Purpose:  Strengthen and amplify the success of women in the construction industry.   


The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) is a professional association comprised of women working in construction and related industries in a variety of positions. NAWIC was founded in 1953 to create a support network for women working in a male-dominated field. Today, NAWIC has 115 chapters throughout the United States that provide its members with opportunities for professional development, education, networking, leadership training, public service and more. NAWIC continues the vision of its founding members by advocating for the value and impact of women builders, professionals and tradeswomen in all aspects of the construction industry.


The Greater Little Rock Chapter is very active!  We host monthly membership meetings where we hear from informative speakers and network with peers. We offer several educational programs; conduct a variety of community service projects; and provide business development opportunities, often times with other construction related organizations. Some of our annual special events include the Valentine’s Day Dance for the students at the Arkansas School for the Deaf, multiple events during ‘Women in Construction Week’, Industry Appreciation Night, and an Annual Bowling Tournament. 


In addition to engaging women who are already employed, we also work with students who are interested in careers in construction! We welcome student members; plus we offer an annual scholarship to a Construction Management student at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock! Whether it’s receiving our scholarship, or just making connections through us, we are big believers in workforce development! 


Join today and experience the power of NAWIC!
