The National Association of Home Builders is looking for a few good women, actually more than a few. Mortgage Professional America reports:
Members of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) have called for an increase in recruiting efforts to attract women to the home building industry as the residential construction industry continues to grapple with a severe labor shortage.
The call was made in recognition of Professional Women in Building (PWB) Week. PWB members said bringing more women into the construction labor force represents a potential opportunity for the future.
“Right now more than ever is the time for our industry to not only increase our recruitment efforts, but to also change the way we talk about careers in homebuilding to show women this industry has so much to offer them,” said Judy Dinelle, chair of the NAHB PWB Council. “We need to help the public, guidance counselors, and parents understand that the industry provides a high income, significant work values, job security, and a sense of accomplishment.”
