Women make up 11 percent of the construction workforce, meaning there is much to be done to bring more females into the industry and support their careers. Together, we can build a stronger workforce by making sure women in the industry feel connected, valued and empowered. For this reason, FMI is offering its Emerging Managers Institute as a special training event focused on women, yet open to all. The event will take place on Oct. 8-10 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Event Details

  • Three days of immersive training
  • Over 10 management learning modules
