Our expert panelists, located throughout Michigan, shared personal stories from the field, including the hurdles and achievements they’ve encountered while developing a diverse workforce. After a round of Q&A with the panel, attendees joined a small group breakout session, where moderators led discussions on how to overcome obstacles many women face in the construction industry.
