MALVERN, Pa. — CertainTeed has announced its commitment as a Gold-level sponsor of National Women in Roofing (NWIR), a volunteer-based organization that supports the careers of women roofing professionals.
NWIR focuses on connecting and empowering women so they can promote, change and improve best practices within the roofing industry. This includes efforts on recruiting and mentoring incoming women into the industry and providing opportunities for education and networking.
“NWIR is making valuable strides to further strengthen our industry,” said Barb McDonough, general manager of CertainTeed’s commercial roofing division. “Not only does the organization shine visibility on new opportunities for women, it also champions the accomplishments and dedication of those already established in the industry. This is why CertainTeed is proud to support NWIR as a Gold-level sponsor.”
Sponsorships serve a critical role for NWIR, as they support the organization as a whole and fund critical program initiatives. In addition to its Gold-level sponsorship, CertainTeed also collaborated with NWIR to establish the Philadelphia chapter, which serves as a vehicle for members to connect regularly to exchange ideas, attend educational events and develop relationships to advance women within the roofing profession.
“We at NWIR are proud to be sponsored by CertainTeed,” said NWIR Immediate Past Chair Shari Carlozzi. “This sponsorship is so important for us because it allows women to network with others in the roofing profession while forming bonds that can lead to greater opportunities for women and the industry as a whole.”
