What Our Current Members Have to Say

As a WiOPS sponsor and event host, Pacific Wall Systems has had the opportunity to highlight the work that we do, showcase some of our interesting projects, and teach others about our trade, which has helped get our name out there to members and clients.

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.

At WiOPS events, you can share experiences with other women in leadership positions and learn from those who have been in your shoes before. It’s a lot about learning through shared experiences and gaining new technical and social skills to keep relevant in the workplace.

As a generalization, women are not wired quite the same as their male counterparts and were not generally raised to think our future would be at the helm of a construction or engineering firm. Organizations like WiOPS help even the playing field.
