Member Testimonials

Here’s what our current members have to say:

I heard about WiOPS from a podcast called “The Construction Career Podcast,” when one of the episodes featured the President Shaabini Alford. In the interview, she introduced WiOPS and mentioned how she helped found the organization. She also discussed the challenges she faced as a woman in construction, and how she overcame them. I was very curious and decided to join the next even to know more.

I attended several events and was able to meet a lot of incredible professionals, including both women and men. They shared their experiences and points of views generously and openly. My favorite event was “Women in Construction: Decades of Success,” which featured panelists sharing their experiences and observations over the decades. They mentioned the diverse role that women in construction play has ensured the progress and long-term development of the industry, and that they have made an enormous contribution. I was very inspired, and am proud to be one of these women in construction.

I started in this organization from day 1, almost 8 years ago. The reason for me joining was to be able to find more women that I would be able to work with and learn from. I was looking for a sense of motivation and a mentor to show me the lead.

The experience has been much more than I expected. From all the panels, guest speakers, and events I have attended with all these strong ladies in the industry it has changed and helped me become a better person in the construction world and in my personal life. I have learned to be more confident, a better leader within our company, and develop great relationships with others in WiOPS and the industry.

I can honestly say I have attended almost “ALL” events and hosted events at our office in the past years. My favorite would have to be the J&M Concrete Sample Day! Yes I do work there, but so many people were able to participate, learn, and enjoy themselves in so many ways it made hosting the event a pleasure! But all events have been great and I have learned a lot.

Thank you WiOPS for creating this amazing organization!
