About NAWIC Palmetto SC #385
The Palmetto Chapter of South Carolina was chartered on August 28, 2018 to serve the Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester County areas. Our goal is to provide professional development opportunities for women in our industry, to ignite interest in the many opportunities available in the construction industry, and to increase the viability of women in construction. Through a unified effort we hope to diminish the skilled labor shortage that currently exists and place emphasis on growing the female representation in the industry.

The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) was founded with the purpose of enhancing the success of women in the construction industry.
The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) originally began as Women in Construction of Fort Worth, Texas in 1953. Sixteen women came together, knowing that women represented only a small fraction of the construction industry, and organized NAWIC to create a support network. Women in Construction of Fort Worth was so successful that it gained its national charter in 1955 and became the National Association of Women in Construction.
Today, NAWIC provides its members with opportunities for professional development, education, networking, leadership training, public service and more.
