How we got to 50% women at my startup
ashwini asokan

Working in construction I rarely see women. I mainly talk to them as they are office managers, accountants. Very rare to find a women have a material business, rare to see a Project Manager in commercial construction. They’re all estimators, schedulers, interior desiners, junior-architects or working in residential. Everyday I look around and think… just trying to be 100 times more fierce than a man is hard every single day. Our company amongst 12 people has 3 women project managers… we wear the site superintendent hat many days and work from the site. More power to us but at the end of the day it’s a sad state.
