Women in the Workforce
The City of Madison Engineering Division, in partnership with the Parks Division, Water Utility and Traffic Engineering Division, joined in celebrating the nationally-recognized Women in Construction Week 2022.
This is the third year City Engineering has highlighted the work of women in the construction industry, and is the first year agencies beyond the Engineering Division have participated, recognizing that construction-related work spans many different types of careers. As a City, we’re proud to highlight the work of women in different agencies doing different work, impacting the same industry. Check out the full list of those recognized here.
We are always working to have more representation of women on our workforce, especially in areas where they are underrepresented. I am proud of our progress on this, and the great impact women have had on our City.
