Career & Industry Days
In addition to National Industry Day, NABWIC also supports Career and Industry Days within their local state jurisdictions. Career and Industry days provide students with professional role models who use the days as a platform to share with the students some of their life experiences, possible career roadmaps, techniques for skills development and gives them the opportunity to network with professionals.
The professionals are primarily from occupations supported by “STEM”…science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
NABWIC participates in several state and local Department of Transportation events. One key event is Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Construction Career Days which is a workforce development tool that introduces high school students to the transportation construction industry and supports the pipeline that will provide the professionals of tomorrow.
The 10th Annual Industry Day at Cardozo Education Campus’ TransSTEM Academy was a huge success. Students in a D.C. school’s STEM program experienced the opportunity to see where their education can take them as they attended a career day with dozens of industry leaders at The TransSTEM Academy in Washington DC. Representatives from the National Association of Black Women in Construction (NABWIC), along with the District Department of Transportation (DDOT,) and Introducing Youth to American Infrastructure+ (IYAI+) joined with 50+ professionals from the private and public sectors and government.
