*Women In the Construction Industry—Our #MeToo Stories

  • Minnesota State Bar Association (map)

*Free for newly admitted lawyers only

Description: The construction industry has a reputation.  SNL does skits of workers in hard hats and protective vests catcalling women as they walk down the street.  The participation rates of women and minorities in the construction industry are incredibly low.  As the Minnesota Department of Human Rights continues to raise already tough participation rates for state work, what is it really like to be in the construction industry as a woman?  What happens?  What does that mean when we help construction clients obtain public work?  How should our advocacy change?  Hear from women in the industry what their experiences have been and what can we, as advocates in the industry, do to improve working conditions.
