Sandra Ramos recently invited me to attend the Women Builds Nations Conference held on April 29 to May 1 at the Crowne Plaza O'Hare Hotel and Conference Center in Rosemont, Ill. Record attendances of more than 1,400 were anticipated. Unfortunately, I could not attend due to other commitments.
The man in charge
In the 1950s, it was unusual for women to be in the workforce My wife is our office manager; when folks ask how we have survived decades of working together, I tell them that’s because when she says frog, I ask how high to jump! One of the most impressive Mechanical Town Hall panel members was Alana Ward, who holds a Master Mechanical Contractor’s license My immediate boss here at CONTRACTOR is my editor Candace Roulo Crazy as it may seem in this day and age, some male attitudes in the trades are still mired in the chauvinist dark ages
