Kent Companies Celebrates Women in Construction Week

From the desk of Jeff VanderLaan, CEO

The diversity of talent on our team is remarkable. It’s worthwhile to recognize the wide range of professional roles that contribute to our overall success. To that end, I’m excited to share that Kent Companies is celebrating Women in Construction Week  March 1st-7th.  WIC Week is a national campaign that raises awareness of the professional contributions of women in the construction industry.

We’re releasing a photography series that highlights the impact of the women on our team. Please follow the campaign on our social media channels and engage with the content. As industry leaders, we have a tremendous opportunity to showcase the professionals on our team and attract the next generation of talent to the concrete industry.
