This year's theme is "Many Paths, One Mission." The NAWIC's goal for 2023 is "to celebrate the different journeys women have taken toward the same goal: strengthening and amplifying the success of women in the construction industry."

Meet Kendra Thompson
Our 2023 Women in Construction Spotlight


Kendra Thompson has been a construction pro for over 13 years. A pipefitter by trade with keen organizational skills, she became a project coordinator in the steel erection field. We took a day to meet with Kendra at her job site in Arkansas and get her perspective on why PPE, and women's PPE specifically, is important.  

Follow the link below to read the article about this year's Radians Women in Construction Spotlight and check out the video to hear from Kendra herself.  


WIC Stat Image-1

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, "In 2021, women accounted for 11% of the construction labor force." That's approximately 1,186,000 women that, if not outfitted in properly fitting PPE, could be exposed to increased dangers on the job. 


One Size Does Not Fit All

The demand for women's apparel that fits properly and meets their unique needs is on the rise. Offering a woman a garment designed to fit a man doesn't cut it, and we're taking steps to make sure women on construction jobs have PPE that keeps them comfortable, but more importantly, safe.
