Abstract:

Information on women working in the construction industry and, more specifically, information on women employed in the United States Navys Civil Engineers Corps is very limited. To obtain information on women employed in a construction-related field, a survey was conducted of all the women CEC officers. Results show that there is an intense interest about the characteristics and concerns of these women officers as evidenced by the enthusiastic response. The results of this study can be used as a tool in developing better policies, and recruiting and retention strategies. More importantly, this report should help to increase the awareness to the issues important to women in the Civil Engineer Corps as well as women in the construction industry.
