This month Ballinger staff members attended a luncheon organized by Turner Construction at a project site in New York City. Approximately 70 team members, including more than 30 woman trade contractors, attended. The appreciation event highlighted the progress made by Nontraditional Employment for Women (NEW), a workforce development program that prepares women for careers in the construction, transportation, energy, and facilities maintenance industries.
Turner Construction, a frequent Ballinger collaborator, also showed their support of women in the field by helping to fund to a feature-length documentary, “Hard Hatted Woman.” The film, about women who work in construction trades, is set to premiere in 2018.
The women and men of Ballinger are proud to support our industry colleagues during Women’s History Month and throughout the year.
