Residents of Chicago’s historic Englewood neighborhood are pointing to a new 25-foot-tall art installation at 6701 South Wentworth Avenue as a symbol of inspiration, hope, and achievement of students living in the southside community. (Learn more about the Englewood monument.)
The number of women in the entire U.S. construction workforce came in at just under 11 percent in 2022. While that percentage continues to climb, ESD Workplace Solutions Practice Leader Julie Lardenoit says more can be done to support women in the construction and engineering fields.
Lardenoit will be joining a panel discussion, “Under Construction: A Road to Success,” hosted by ARCO/Murray. Lardenoit will be joining four other female industry professionals to discuss their personal journeys in a male-dominated industry. This year, panelists will focus on the first five years of their careers and offer insights and tools to help succeed within the industry.
Registration for the Thursday, March 9 Chicago event is open. ARCO/Murray is hosting similar events in Dallas, Denver, Northern California, and Nashville as part of National Women in Construction Week.
The event is part of the 25th annual National Women in Construction Week and supports this year’s theme “Many Paths, One Mission.”
Julie Lardenoit is an active member of various professional organizations freely sharing her professional knowledge and expertise while also demonstrating her commitment to ESD’s mission to improve society through the built environment.
