NAWIC - Enhancing the Success of Women in the Construction Industry for 67 Years


NAWIC is an international association of women employed in the construction industry which promotes that industry and supports the advancement of women within it.  Looking for a way to enhance your career and enrich your life?  Come join us!  Discover the range of opportunities available to you in business, education, networking, and personal relationships.

Greater Tidewater Chapter 137

The Greater Tidewater, chartered on April 29, 1967, remains active in the construction industry and the community. Our chapter serves all 7 Cities of Hampton Roads to all women who work in the Construction Industry from Project Management, to Roof installers, to Bankers, to Lawyers, Architects and Engineers, Surveyors, Brick Layers, etc.

We focus giving back to the local community through donations of time and needed items for organizations such as Roc Solid Foundation; as well as offering scholarships to local female students whose education focuses on the Construction Industry.

The focus of Women in Construction (WIC) Week is to highlight women as a viable component of the construction industry. WIC Week also provides an occasion for NAWIC’s thousands of members across the country to raise awareness of the opportunities available for women in the construction industry and to emphasize the growing role of women in the industry.It is also a time for local chapters to give back to their communities.

For WIC Week, our NAWIC Tidewater Chapter 137 is raising money for the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore!

Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps.

We also have donation boxes set up across Hampton Roads to collect non-perishable items. Please contact us for details

Further information about Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore below. They help lead the effort to eliminate hunger in our community. Facebook pays all the processing fees for you, so 100% of your donation goes directly to the nonprofit!

Thank you for your support, and if you are interested in learning more about NAWIC, contact
