I need to report to work today, so I am taking the opportunity to discuss women in construction and women’s contributions to worker safety and health.

I teach a Construction Safety course as part of a Construction Management program at Dunwoody College of Technology in Minneapolis, MN.

Today, I hope to learn from the class as they learn about some women’s contributions to the field of safety and health and spark some conversation about why a movement like #adaywithoutawoman is important, even in 2017.

Here’s the assignment for class discussion. I’ll break them up into groups and give them time to research and put together a presentation. Please feel free to download this Word document and use in your classroom, board room, or any other forum available to you today. Let me know if you do!
