Monthly Poll: Women in Fenestration

It’s no secret that women are the minority in fenestration. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, though women make up nearly half of the working population (47.5 percent), they remain underrepresented in the manufacturing industry. And, though the numbers for women in construction are increasing, the National Association of Women in Construction reports that women comprise just 9.1 percent of the construction industry in the U.S. at the end of 2016.

We want to know more about the role of women in our industry—those in leadership positions as well as on the construction side, selling and installing windows, and those manufacturing the goods on the factory floor. We want to hear how companies are recruiting and promoting women in this industry. Email us with your thoughts and observations, post a comment on the subject and review the results of this month’s poll.
