This week, March 5-11, is Women in Construction Week (sponsored by the National Association of Women in Construction), so it is appropriate that we take a minute to voice our appreciation to the women of Building & Earth. We are in business today because our founder and CEO, Deepa Bhate, had the will, courage and fortitude to start us down the path to success.
We have succeeded against all odds, and our diversity is certainly one of the building blocks that has made us stronger. Today, women are represented throughout our ranks.
The construction industry can be difficult for anyone, but at Building & Earth, we appreciate the drive and determination it takes for our female employees to succeed. You go girls!
Pictured below are just a few of the many women that make Building & Earth a great place to work: Jihane Rougui, staff engineer; Denise Roberts, corporate administrative assistant; Wilma Penick, corporate services manager; Deepa Bhate, CEO and founder; Teri Cochran, office manager; Kaye Cummins, assistant office manager; Maggie Fehn, staff professional; Sol Ting, assistant project manager; Shannon Thompson, lab technician; Lelia Moore, office manager; Jeannette Patrick, engineering technician; Ginger Miller, office manager; Rachael Heath, project manager; Andi Johnston, office manager; Liz Kenner, engineering technician; and Emily Anderson, field lab technician.
