Companies that involve women in ownership and management may be more sustainable than other firms, delivering big wins for business and society. And there’s evidence to back this up. A 2011 report published by the Harvard Business School suggests that companies with numerous female leaders aren’t only more committed to sustainability, but they also might be better at delivering long-lasting, sustainable and profitable results.
Fortunately for the roofing industry, there’s now an organization dedicated to increasing the sustainable contribution of women. National Women in Roofing (NWiR) is a volunteer-based organization that supports and advances the careers of women roofing professionals. The organization provides networking, mentoring, education and recruitment opportunities from the rooftop to the boardroom, for the young professional to the seasoned manager.
