    Celebrating Our Leading Females at Power Design

    We love to celebrate our #WomenInConstruction, and there is no better time than in March – which comprises Women in Construction Week, International Women’s Day, and Women’s History Month!

    Every year, Power Design proudly joins the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) and industry leaders to highlight the #FemaleLeaders in the construction industry. Founded in 1953 by sixteen female leaders, NAWIC originated as Women in Construction of Fort Worth, TX, and was created to support women pursuing a career in construction. Nearly 70 years later, the initiative to grow female employment in the construction industry has not slowed down and continues to grow.

    We are also happy to celebrate #WomensHistoryMonth, where we recognize the contributions women have made to the United States and acknowledge the specific achievements women have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields.

    This year, we want to spotlight a few of our leading ladies to celebrate their careers, stories, and how they’re breaking the mold as successful female leaders. Read what they had to say below!

    There are so many advantages to joining the construction field, including leadership opportunities and the ability to advance in a field with so many diverse career and trade paths.

    I'm especially proud to work in construction at Power Design because we all have the same goal in mind—to build high-quality projects for great clients. PDI has created a thriving atmosphere where I feel like my voice is heard.

    Lighting Associate

    The best part about my job is knowing that I'm doing meaningful work that helps our field team, and makes it easier for them to install panels on the jobsite.

    Production Associate

    I have experienced a collection of many growth moments that have led to a lot of professional and personal development. It's those moments throughout my time at PDI, where I see the work I've put in, turn into knowledge and confidence in what I bring to the table.

    My advice to young females entering the construction industry is to learn the job better than anyone else and trust yourself. Be confident and ambitious, but never be afraid to ask questions. Women have a lot to offer in the industry, so let your strengths create opportunities and take them.
