(Guest Blog Post by Corissa Santos, Co-President, National Women in Roofing Orange County)
National Women in Roofing (NWIR) is a volunteer-based organization that supports and advances the careers of women roofing professionals. We provide networking, mentoring, education and recruitment opportunities from the rooftop to the boardroom, for the young professional at the start of her career to the seasoned manager in the executive suite.
Our focus is on connecting and empowering women so that their training and leadership skills can help drive the overall betterment and professionalism of the roofing industry. Our membership also includes and welcomes men who support the inclusion of women in the roofing industry. Working together, we are bringing the industry to a new level of excellence by supporting and promoting the contributions of women as an essential component to the future of roofing.
It has been such an honor that the NWIR has been able to help support and work with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA). When choosing which event we want to participate in we make sure it aligns with our message as well. The SHEBuild was such a great opportunity for us women to show we can come together and get our hands dirty. On behalf of the NWIR of LA County/Orange County THANK YOU Habitat LA for making our community a better place. We can’t wait to work with you on more events in the future.
